Lou:

Sounds like they conveniently didn't include the fork blades in the weight. Kinda like the old rim weights "without ferrules."

Nice marketing ploy!

RE: Re: [Classicrendezvous] SLX tubeset wt

The brochure from Columbus says the weight is for 8 tubes for a 54cm center to center frame. My Used Bike Buyers Guide lists the tubeset at the 1700 or so grams that you mentioned, but I don't have that source readily in front of me.
