Don't know if anyone cares or if this is common knowledge but here's some info...
On a Giant Revel 3 frame I was able to grind off the kickstand plate, rack mount nubs, cable holders for front derailleur (1x9), rear brake cable holders, and rear rim brake mount.
I also cut 2.5mm off the driveside bb shell to allow use of a bb mounted chain guide. Internal threads were one inch and bb threads were only one half inch so it doesn't affect how many threads connect, and if I remove the chainguide in the future I can just use a 2.5mm washer.
All of this saved a surprising amount of weight (don't know total as I did it in phases and with other non frame changes)
