You may not see it at first but lift the lids on the tool boxes, open some cupboards or look behind the weld curtain and it will be there.

The powder coating line in the factory I used to work in was a classic. Same as the access panels on the parts rumblers.

Up market... Pfffffft. If the product comes from Taiwan it is generic, period. Regardless of who's sticker or what tricky patent they have...it's a generic robot frame. Don't let these clowns push their retail prices up by pretending that isn't the case.
Plenty of people do that, I was surprised to see the 'Made in Taiwan' sticker on my Banshee.

Their old designs, before their special suspension design, were straight out of the catalogues.

Lots of bends do it, and that's ok. I just think they need to be open about it and price accordingly.

Had never seen these, I find it incredibly attractive!

Complete Elite 8 grand on today's exchange rate plus shipping and tax would come to about 9 and a bit grand landed?

Guessing this build would be within half a kilo of most other high end spec bikes. Nobody publishes frame weights except these guys but they don't have complete bike weights. The one thing I love about my SC is it's damn light.

My 5010 CC frameset (very similar to your Bronson) was a claimed ~2.5kg including shock IIRC.

The Stanton frame is ~4.5kg including shock. Then add 29er wheels and fork adding a few grams here and there.

The Stanton's are beautiful along with the Starlings.
My Banshee Prime weighed within 150g of my Cotic Flaremax. 16.1kg trail bike doesn't ride heavy at all. Steel bikes have different feel to them all together. Great compliance and nimble feel. Weight is a lot less of priority now than it use to be for me.

Agreed, except when I'm grinding up a fireroad climb...

@beeb Stanton seems to be 15.9 kg with the cheaper build running Marzocchi coil shock and Bomber, from a review I found. So maybe half a kilo saving with the higher spec components and Ohlins?

Current Hightower XT is 14.76, X01 CC 14.04. Current 5010 XT is 14.07, X01 CC is 13.4. Much respect for SC putting the weights of all their builds on the site. Giant says call your local dealer lol.

Maybe 3.5kg frame weight for the 5010 CC? 2.5 doesn't seem to add up.

If @beeb was to remove just half his penis he could catch up the 3.5kg weight surplus
