2,08 kg with Hi-Ten Tubes = few weeks of ride. I now what i'm saying. Cr-Mo and Hi-Ten have almost equal weight, hi-Ten is cheaper but cr-mo is much stronger. So  companies that have the cheapest Hi-Ten Frames are make it heavy.

Now Look on your frame:

Super thin backtriangle, and that "DownTown" geometry, so a lot of force will be pointed there.

Don't make my reply as an attack, this is only my own suggestions that i think will help you to build better frames.

Yep you should at least go for CrMo for that rear triangle. GT Bikes usually have semi CrMo frames.

Hi-Ten all around? You better make it a cheap frame...
