So far based on research/homework, in theory, those frames that can use 451 wheelset are Pacific Reach, Tonino Concetto, Dahon Mu Ex, Mu SL (these are the predecessors of Vector X20, X27, so these should be able too). Not sure about the BB, as most using stock or proprietery parts.

Mu Ex frame is 2340g (without fork), Pacific Reach frame is 2297g (with rear suspension, w/o fork). Not sure what is weight of the Concetto, but stock total is 11.4 with 451 wheelset.
