    2017 Giant XTC -2 weight

    My local dealer has a nice deal on a 2017 XTC -2 in XL, my size.
    Iíve been wanting a universal hardtail, and I was attracted to this model with the 120mm fork and more trail oriented geometry.

    Now the bad, the LBS threw it on the scale - 29lbs, in stock trim with the 27.5+ rims and tires.

    if I wanted to throw on some 29Ē rims and 2.2 or 2.35ís on this rig, what is a realistic bike weight ?
    Is it reasonable to think that you can easily get this bike down to 24-25 lbs -without going all weight weenie? appreciate any advice or feedback

    Easily get to 26lbs, maybe not cheap, but easy with a nice set of wheels and XC tires.

    Thanks large man. I actually have the stock Syncros XR 2.0ís 29ís-that I took off my Scott spark. They are both boost, so actually wouldnít need to purchase another wheelset if I decided to pull the trigger.
    Any other areas to easily shed weight? Iíd preferably keep the droppper seat.
    Iíd prob be happy if it were 25 lbs.
    The Kona Honzo CR trail has my attention too, seems like a similar bike. Guessing itís about the same weight wise.

    Crank and cassette are heavy, the frame itself is light, have a customer with that frame built to 20.5lbs with pedals and cages.
