    What's a reasonable amount of money? :P

    Heh. I bet you could get it down to 25lbs without going to anything really exotic. Full XTR and wheels and tires would get you to 26lbs. Another pound if you went with like pedals/seatpost/nothing-but-a-carbon-shell saddle. Past that, you are offically a true weight weenie! :P

    My "06" Large Fuel EX8 weighs 27.9

    I have mine down to 27.9lbs on the digital scale. Current changes are as follows.

    Thompson Seatpost
    Bontrager Race Lite Saddle
    Bontrager Race Xlite stem
    Bontrager Race XXX Lite carbon riser bar
    XT cranks
    King Headset

    I think I can still get a little weight off the bike without spending too much money but I like the feel and it is going to make a great endurance race bike.
