    Ditch the saddle and seatpost.. Just kidding.
    Seriously you've got one sweet ride already.
    But since you dont seem to have a budget..
    Try out a carbon wheelset with the lightest hubs you can get.
    Then also switch to a carbon/ti saddle.
    Then try a lefty fork.
    Then carbon cranks.
    Then 1x9.
    Then crank brothers Ti eggbeaters.
    Then XX drive train with gripshift.

    In the end I completely agree with mmm..bicycles... Just go out and ride what you currently have.

    I'm not posting to offend or mock you. I just hope you realize you already have a sweet bike.

    Shimano/Pro XCR or Koryak lock on grips can likely save you 25-30gms

    Thank you for the feedback and I am not offended. I thought it was pretty much there but figured I asked the weight weenie forum just in case there might be something I am totally missing. Thanks again!

    Ride the thing - ALOT and it will lose weight... I mean you will lose weight, and the bike will get faster... I mean you will get faster... 21.5 lbs is freakin light! My Superfly Single Speed is 21.5 lbs! Ride the bike!
