Cheapest way is tyres as above.

Forks and wheels easy way to save big but cost the most

I'd recommend Geax Gato 520 gram. £23 from Wiggle.

Nice CUBE, I would say ride the bike a few times and then think about changing parts, as you get fitter you may not need to change anything.

That is the best advice.

Things like lighter tyres and wheels will be far more noticeable than some poster cranks or a lighter cassette.

Nice looking bile though.

Are those tyres not reasonable already? smart sams are 600 grams, definately not the heaviest, could probably save almost the same weight by changing the innertubes for a fraction of the cost.
