    Idea! Reponse XE Weight

    I've seen some people on here claim to have gotten their DB Response down to 25lbs. I'm curious how this was accomplished. I've changed everything but the headset and wheelset. Mine comes in at 28.5lbs. Granted 4lbs dropped is pretty good and I plan on getting a wheelset in the future to drop it down another pound or 2. Is the wheelset the way to really get it down to that weight?

    Also has anyone noticed the regular Response and the XE have different frames at the headtube? The XE looks like it is much stronger around the headtube. That's why I bought it.

    Mods,

    -Forte flatbar (cut down to 620mm)
    -Raceface Ride 90mm stem
    -Suntour Epicon X2 RL-R fork
    -Raceface Ride seatpost
    -Alivio shifters and M410 Crankset minus big ring with RaceFace bash guard
    -Avid SD7 levers and BB7 brakes
    -M520 pedals
    -Deore rear derailleur
    -Deore front derailleur
    -WTB Velociraptor front tire
    -Kenda Klaw rear tire (going to change this, not a good rear tire)

    I think that's all. When I change wheelsets I'm going to switch to 9 speed rear cassette.

    Where are y'all getting the extra 3lbs from? Thanks! Getting XT can't be THAT much lighter can it?

    Hi I was wondering the same thing about getting the weight down, I want to change out my groupset and do a 9 or 10 speed not really sure which one to go with. The only parts I have changed out so far are the handlebars, stem and headset. everything else is stock.

    The only thing I can think of is putting the frame just the frame on a scale and start from there, nd every part get the weight on that then just do math to see what it all comes out to.
