So I want to merge the components of 3 bikes that I have to make the lightest cross country bike possible. Could someone advise me on what components are higher end and should be swapped on to the best frame?
The bikes are a 2000 specialized rockhopper comp, a 97-2000 panther carbonore, and a 2000 kona lava dome. I can't find any specs on the weight of the carbon frame.
The available components are as follows:

frames
panther carbonore -carbon fiber and steel/cromoly
rockhopper comp-aluminum
lava dome-cromoly

forks
manitou pro a (this fork works the best by far)
manitou spyder r
rst 381

brakes
diacompe 7 exa shimano v-brake
avid AD1.0L Diacompe vo735
avid AD1.0L Avid 10

F. Derailleur Deore LX R. Derailleur Deore XT
F. Derailleur Deore LX R. Derailleur Deore LX
F. Derailleur STX RC R. Derailleur Deore LX

Wheels
front and rear ritchey rock comp specialized hubs
front rhyno lite deore hub rear mavic x139 deore hub
front and rear mavic x138 shimano hubs
