My bike as it currently stands.

Transition Suppressor Frame
Size Large
Rockshox RCT3 Lyrik 160mm 27.5"
Rockshox Monarch Debonair Plus
Rockshox Reverb Stealth Seatpost 150mm
Eagle X01 12 Speed drivetrain
SRAM XX1 170mm GXP 168 Q-Factor crankset w/ 36T Eagle X01 chainring
SRAM Guide RS brakeset w/ SRAM Centerline 200mm rotors
ENVE M70 Thirty wheelset w/ Maxxis DHF 2.5 WT & DHR 2.4
Sensus grips
Deity Cavity 35mm stem
Deity DC31 Mohawk handlebars
Deity Pinner saddle
HT T1 pedals

31 lbs 4 ounces

I'm wanting to lose some more weight from it and debating on switching out just a few things and hoping to make a difference.

180mm SRAM Centerline rotors
SRAM Guide RSC brake set
Eagle X01 34T or 32T chainring
Deity Retina I-Beam seatpost
Deity Sidetrack I-Beam saddle

I already own the RSC brake set and 180mm rotors as they were on another bike and I'd just have to have them swapped over. Thought to change the chainring just to make the gearing a bit easier on myself but I've managed okay so far but I could go either way. The significant weight loss would come from swapping out the dropper for the I-Beam saddle (now I know the loss of performance and it is significant but I've ridden trails without a dropper and think I would be alright though there would be some discomfort but I think the trade off would be viable.) The choice of saddle being the Deity Sidetrack is because of low weight and price (plus it looks awesome.) Not sure of that particular saddle but I've ridden Deity Pinner and the Mainline Ti. Thought to ask to opinions on here as otherwise this forum and all forums are a bit of a hit or miss.

Removing the dropper would certainly take of a lot of weight but it would also remove a lot of performance and fun. If you're going that route you could shave some weight by removing the suspension fork and going rigid.

Maybe look elsewhere for some savings? You've built up a banger of a bike so I'd hate to see it limited that way.

Sell the enves and get a reasonably priced carbon wheelset and sell the frame. Buy Patrol carbon frame. Big Grin

Or just ride the shit out of your bad ass bike and enjoy it as-is!

ride the bike, nothing wrong with the spec. My small suppressor is heavier as it runs a coil and alu bars.

Yeah my Scout must be a solid 31# but it's my favorite bike I've had yet. Not worried about the weight.

Last ride on my tr 450 before I sold it. Sad to see it go. But an epic send off.
