2014 Epic Expert Carbon World Cup 24 lbs even
After a few changes, my size large Epic World Cup weighs 24 lbs even in rideable form. Parts upgrades include Easton EC70 Wide Light 720mm bar, Thomson X4 100 x 10 degree rise stem, ESI Chunky Grips, Easton EC90 Zero Seatpost, Romin Expert Evo Saddle 155mm (pictures show a 155 mm Phenom Comp), 2.3 Ground Control Front and 2.0 Captain Rear tires both control casing and run tubeless, two carbon bottle cages, and S.W.A.T mini tool, XTR 970 pedals. This bike weighed 24lbs stock and I got it down to 23 lbs even before I switched the stock tires. The weight penalty on the tires was pretty significant, but the performance on the trails here in Colorado is worth it.

29 porky pounds. Single speed but heavy wheels and steel frame. Someday I'll get a lightweight machine. Not until I'm a lightweight motor though.
Re: Your 29er weight
28.99 today. Waiting on carbon bars, lighter saddle, and lighter grips. Probably 28.5 after that. Might go back to eggbeaters too, which will be closer to 28 even (with dropper). Not bad if you ask me

... none of my bikes werer built with weight savings in mind ... I built them to be trail bikes so they better be able to take a bit of abuse. Each do have carbon bars for feel, not weight. Each are 1x ... cranks are all 175mm (2 stylo, 1 slx). Each have Stan's Flow wheels set-up tubeless.

Rotating mass is where weight loss is most effective. Tubes? Really?
