18 pounds Scalpel

I wont say much about this one, 110mm of travel up front, 100mm at the back, disc brakes, strong frame yet, it weighs 8.25kg. That's 18.2lbs! That's lighter than most hardtails with v-brakes, lighter than some road bikes and awfully close to the UCI legal bike minimum weight limit... for road bikes. The craziest thing though is that it's not just a show bike, it will actually be available in Europe. I don't want to know the price tag on this one, let's just say it's in the 'if you have to ask, you can't afford it' range. A cheap, 'regular' 22.4lbs Team Scalpel will do just fine.
