    Just Purchased a Used 2010 FSR XC Comp

    It seems to be a bit heavy and without putting to much money into it... Do you guys/gals have any suggestions on what I could do to lighten it?

    I am a bit of a newb.

    Your input is much appreciated.

    Check your tires. Mine came with Captains wire bead. I believe you can get lighter ones. I put Kenda Neves 2.1 and they are slow rolling but lighter. I also bought a used air fork that is about a pound and half lighter than the Tora 302 SL Coil. Mine weighed 32 lbs before and is around 29ish now. Wheel upgrade if you have the money. I'm still looking and saving for those. Crank and cassette are a little heavy too. Its almost endless. Good bike though.

    Pretty much spot on I reckon. The rims aren't the strongest too.

    Tyres and inner tubes might be a good bet. Kevlar folding tyres is what you want to save the weight or even go tubless.

    Good bike though. I've enjoyed mine since I got it.

    Most of the Stumpjumper parts are interchangeable. I've been buying used SJ parts from some of the guys I ride with as they upgrade.

    My wife is actually going to be riding this bike, she is probably 105 pounds soaking wet. So I really am not to worried about the rims.

    Mainly , I am just trying to reduce the wait, because it will help her get up those tough hills .

    It does sound like the forks and the tires is the way to start.
