That sounds a heckuva lot more accurate. That 17.5 for a 58 cm (identified above) sounds like a marketing ploy.
17.5 was from the Bicycling Magazinemwood

review. The 17.5 was w/o pedals and cages, w/ Ultegra double.
I was looking at the 5200 recently (before I bought my Colnago Asso) so I did some research. That was the only test I could find online. The bike received a favorable report, except for the "wooden" ride.
I found it interesting that the Trek brochure only lists the frame weight (2.4lbs) and not the total weight.

FYI...I've owned the 5200 for two months now and love it. You couldn't buy a better bike for the money.

However, if you experience some creaking from the front end and especially when out of the saddle, grease the drop outs on the fork before doing anything else.

I'm not alone on this, so it's a known 5200 issue. I originally thought it was the headset until someone suggested the drops and that's what it was.

As far as weight, light...real light.

Enjoy!!!
