Location: Falkirk! But I am a Fifer so that's OK...
It's all about the wheels baby! I saved over a kilo over my initial build... In order of weight saved...

Tyres - Went from Panaracer Fire XC Pros to IRC Mythos (346g).
Tubes - Maxxis Fly Weights (285g).
Wheels - Switched to the Mav 231/XT M732/0 Hubs from my Stumpy (282g).
Skewers - Modern Ti cheapies from Superstar (123g).

Total = 1036g saved. Bang for buck? 15 quid each for both the inner tubes and the skewers.

Other cheap saves? If you're running a heavy duty single-speed chain - I saved 115g by popping on a generic KMC 9-speed instead.

And I could still save a bit of weight in the tyres - I see Maxxis do a set of 330g tyres (versus the 491g Mythos), a bit spendy though, but there's another 320g!
