    Weight Savings? 2006 Devinci Ollie

    I recently picked up a 2006 Devinci Ollie. I bought it with the idea that next summer, I'll be taking it up to Whistler, or south to Steven's Pass (if they open Summer 2010 like I'm hearing). I'd also like to be able to pedal up some of the fire roads at Galbraith, and do it without feeling like a gorilla is squeezing my lungs. The bike weighs just shy of 48 pounds. I'd like to shave a few pounds off, but not spend a rediculous amount of cash doing so. Any ideas?

    Frame: 2006 Devinci Ollie w/ Manitou Swinger 4-Way
    Fork: 2007 Totem Coil
    Front and Rear Derailleurs, and Shifters: Sram X-9
    Crankset, Handlebars, Stem: Truvativ Holzfeller
    SDG Bel-Air Saddle and Seatpost
    Sun Rims MTX Front Wheel
    WTB LaserDisc Rear Wheel & Hub
    Avid Code Brakes
    Kenda Nevegal Front and Rear
    Cane Creek XX Headset
    Truvativ Chainguide

    Dude, as far as I know, that frame is a tank, so it won't be easy to get it down without spending a ton. Nevertheless, there are 2 easy ones:
    -get rid of the Truvativ crankset (it's probably a Holzfeller or similar? The Howitzer BB weighs a ton). Go with the new Saint if you want to drop some serious weight and still have a bombproof crank.
    I'm guessing the Truvativ chainguide is the Shiftguide (for the dual ring set up)? They are made out of steel and are pretty heavy....just get a 30 buck Blackspire Stinger instead, they weigh a lot less, and perform just as well.

    After that, it will start getting expensive to drop more weight...

    What size are the nevegals, and are the dh tubes in there? It has to be the frame because the parts you listed shouldnt put the bike over like 44 lbs.

    You could save a decent chunk by selling the code brakes and getting exilers instead, with 180mm rotor in rear.

    If you can, go to a single ring setup and grab a newer e13 SRS+ or LG1+.

    The new e13 guides are very light.

    Elixirs will shed some weight.

    Ti spring will drop some weight.

    Grab some Deity Dirty Thrity bars.
