    XTC Owners Help - Upgrades for my Giant XTC 2013


    I love my 2013 Giant XTC 2, it's a pleasure to ride and just too much fun. I would like to spend a bit of money making it a all mountain build. I want to try save weight and also put some fatter treads on it and a wider all-mountain handlebar and a shorter stem.

    I'm looking at getting these rims FULCRUM Wheels - Products: Red Metal 1 XL with 2.35 nobby nic's or any other 2.35's you guys could suggest that are as meaty and lighter. The hans dampf look a bit to extreme for me.

    I want to get a longer handlebar out of aliminum about 760mm and a all mountain 60mm stem.

    If you guys have suggestions for a build of parts to get me a all mountain build while shaving off half a kilo or more leave your suggestions.

    Money isn't too much of a object, prepared to spend $1k

    This is aimed at owners of XTC's who have had success by lightening thier bikes. I would like to know the drop from going from the stock parts ( handlebar, stem, seatpost, wheels, tyres, tubeless ) to the new upgrades. And advice on what to get.

    And also how much do these stock parts weigh!
