    i can't see much way to get a few pounds off that except forks or tyres

    the frames are 550 ($1050) which as cheap as FS comes in the UK, we get screwed big time for bike parts even by UK companies :- orange bikes

    even a yeti as-x weights less than that, would that make a better all round bike?

    I don't know Yeti

    they just came to Canada and I don't know anything about them. I can say the Heckler makes an excellent all-around bike...you can build it burly and DH/FR it, or build it up for XC and keep it under 30lb easily. I believe the Yeti is similar.

    I don't know how you want to use it so I'm guessing here.

    My large 04 was 43 pounds stock. Quite tiring to climb steep hills in stock form, but it'll get you there. With some judicious parts-swapping, you can drop quite a bit of weight. Mine's 37 pounds now and still bomber. Once your legs adjust to it, you can climb anything that you could on a light bike. Here's what I changed and approx. weight savings:

    Tires and tubes - switch to Kenda Nevegal 2.35 folding and normal tubes - 3 lbs
    Fork - switch to Mantiou Sherman Firefly - 1.5 lbs
    Cranks - switch to new-style XT - 1 lb
    Seatpost - switch to Thomson 27.2 with QBP reducer - 0.5 lb
