Scott Scale Pro 29 Weight Help
This is my setup. As is, it comes in at around 21.5. Posting here I should probably get that dialed in but here is what I got. I weight 195lbs so I am limited on the super light weight stuff. What areas can I trim weight on the bike. Thanks for your input

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 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
Now you have the bike, work on getting yourself in cycling shape now.
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!
