    2010 Mission 1 weight

    I'm at 31 lbs right now. I've moved to Panaracer Fire X pro 2.1's, and a 1x9 crank setup. I'm aiming at sub 30 lbs. What should I change on the rest of the bike to hit that goal? Wheels?

    I've looked at carbon stems, seatposts and bars, but that looks like it'll only save maybe 100 grams. Not trying to be a weight weenie, just seeing what I can do with the bike.

    Wheels would be a good change, Those weinman 260's are super heavy.

    I figured, any set you recommend? Probably a limit of 500 dollars. XC riding.

    Or for just XC some Mavic Crosstrails $399
    Mavic Crosstrail Disc Wheels '11 at JensonUSA.com

    Thanks for the info. Just wondering, why Mavic? I have nothing against them, just so many wheels to choose from it's hard to find what differentiates the brands.

    Like these Easton's are about the same weight Easton XC One Wheelset at Price Point

    And someone in the wheel subforum recommended these Fulcrums to another user:
    On-One and Titus USA Store — Fulcrum Red Metal 3 Wheelset

    I have Mavic Crossmax SX on my M4 and they are super light and strong too. Lots of good stuff out there but with a limited budget of 500 Mavic will give the best bang for the buck for a light durable wheel. I have been riding 09 Crossmax SLRs on my sortie to this day and they are really doing well. Just stay up on cleaning the freehub body and check the bearings for play, so easy to work on and not to expensive overall. Some will say otherwise but I would say for the cash its the best for a light, strong set. If you could go 1000 on a set I9s are supersweet but there are so many custom options. The I9's are the stiffest laterally than any other wheel. Lots of pretty colors too!

    What David Said, I find the Mavics are the best bang for the buck.
