I am curious what the approx. wt. is of a Roadie 54cm frame is? When I first started looking at Gunnars a few years ago, I remember the frame weights were published on the website, and and I notice that they no longer are. I am NOT a "weight-weenie," and would not be taking delivery of a Gunnar Roadie in a few days if I was...I am just curious and to be honest, have several buddies who ride plastic bikes who are bugging me about the weight. I own several steel bikes, am a huge fan of the ride quality and sheer bliss a nicely balanced steel bike can deliver, and have been looking forward for several years to the day I would own a Gunnar. I have owned and ridden some fairly nice steel bikes however I do not think as nice as a Gunnar and I am confident I will not be dissapointed. My guess is a 54 size frame weighs about 3.5 lbs. Thanks!

Roughly 3 1/2 pounds is right - perhaps even a touch below. I'll have to weigh one the next time I see one go through the shop.

Took delivery of my Roadie a few weeks ago and am very happy - bike has the ride qualilty I was expecting and is nicely balanced with very good power transfer. SRAM Force, Ritchey WCS, Mavic Ksyrium Elites, Roadie Steel Fork - 18.5 lbs with pedals - not bad for a steel frame and fork but who counting anyways.
