My weight weenie tips:-
tyres:- if you are a light rider you can shave a lot of weight by going for 1.8 tyres
skewers :- USE ti spinstix are very very light and not too expensive
cranks and BB combos are a good place to lose weight
Contact points - good weight saving can be made here, but is it worth it? Comfort comes first.
Fortunately I have a flite shaped bum. Eggbeaters are light pedal wise but my knees prefer Time pedals (ATAC & RXS)
Ti bolts. Only do this if you are very very bored + rich. I did this once. The firm I dealt with charged by weight of fasteners.best ti bolts I've ever bought (compared to some bike specific sellers whose bolts are made from ti flavoured cheddar).
My Pace is a little over 22lbs. Similar spec to your bike. RC38s make a big impact, as does Hope Ti-glide. Frame, when naked weighs not a lot (it feels not that dissimilar to my carbon Dolan frame, although the scales might disagree with me on that).
Quick spec: RC200 f8, XTR 95x mechs and shifters, XTR 96x v brakes, Middleburn RS7 with middleburn rings, Race face Ti taperlock bb, Dura Ace chain and cassette, USE bar and bar ends, USE Ti alien seatpost, Mavic ceramic 517s (36 lacing iirc)on Hope Ti Glide/sus hubs, USE Ti spinstix, Flite ti, RC38s, RC45 stem, Hope headset, Time ATAC carbon pedals, most bolts replaced with ti. There's a few shiny/red anodised light things I've probably forgotten.
Having shared my wisdom I confess to having fat Michelin tyres on _ they were on offer and I was skint when I needed new tyres last.
Thanks man, nice spec on the Pace too - must be finger light!
I could lose almost a Ib if I change to the Wildgrippers or the Wildrace'r's and another 250g if I change the Magura's to some Avid SD 7 V's.
I could lose another 200g or so changing to M950 hubs, and even more if I went for lighter wheels - The bottom bracket is a Phil Wood, and not a Ti one, I chose this as it looks the dogs bollocks, and feels so smooth - and its longevity and build quality, but a Phil Ti would've cost much more but saved me 100g - heck, I think with money being no object I could build a sub 20 Ib hardtail with
front suspension easily with this frame!!
But I think I've reached my limit, any more weight loss will only lead to higher maintenance and costs and less comfort and performance as far as this bike is concerned - I looked high and low for the perfect forks - and these I think are brilliant, and I'll be leaving the tyre's for now - though the Wildgrippers will soon be on - anything else? No, I'm done - now onto the next project, and I'll probably sell this too! hehe!!!
