    You REALLY don't want Hayes HFX-9 brakes. Get Avid Elixers, Shimano XTs, or Hayes Strokers in that order.

    You didnt state what wheelset you were getting....mine is Heckler photo thread 2007 and its PORKY at 33.33lbs.
    I believe if i change the wheelset and the SLX gears to something Stylo/avid juicy7 i 'might' hit 30ish range but that would defeats the purpose of an All Mountain setup.

    I think a Thomson Masterpiece would be a better choice for a seat post. Otherwise your set up should be nice and light, minus the brakes. And also a Fox Float fork would save you a little weight.

    Here's mine weighing at 28 lbs.

    The Med. pc orange frame with float R, ec70 post, seat, bottle cage ,clamp and LX fd is at 8.2 #'s now and should come out less than 28# once I put it together. Like FDJK says he just needs to earn it. He is pretty light and rides smooth so there is no worry with light parts plus this bike will see XC race duty in edition to light downhill (CCCX DH series). I have never been a fan of orange but the Heckler in that color is pretty impressive.
    Now go study and clean room Matt.

    ec70's are nicer than the thompson's.
    and the fox float fork are heavier than my revealtion dual air
    but i want to put a vanilla rlc up front because i have a dhx 4.0 coil and my dad has a titanium spring i am for sure he would let me have but i might in the next year hopefullet have the vanilla rl or a talas rlc up front
