The best thing would be the forks, they're 1400g, a set of Echo Lites are 840g.

Depending on what tyres you have, you can save a lot of weight there.

The stem and headset won't save a fat lot when you're running Onza wheels and forks. ;)

yep would have to agree there , i swapped my onza forks (1397g) for a set of echo sl forks for £80 (588g) noticable difference whatever your doing , and if your prepared to throw a bit o' money at it , i would recomend some monty 221 cranks (£80 and very light ) and some magnesium pedals which quite a few brands are selling for around 45 pounds.

Get a drilling machine?

Can anyone actually vouch for drilling things out?

As far as i can see its more trouble than its worth.

I have a mate some of you may know.

Andy B and from what i see he went a bit mental with one of his old frames.

In the end just drilling out random holes anywhere! Looked god awful, :giggle: sooooo naff!
