I've just bought my first steel frame. The ride is fabulous, but the BFe is disappointly heavier than my Rocky Ridge (sounds obvious in hindsight, doesn't it! Should have bought a Soul!). So I need to shed some weight, and need some advice. I'm not looking for a fly-weight bike, but current weight is about 31.5lbs, and I'd really like to aim for 28-29.
My spec is a QR Rev RLT 150.
Cheap wheels - Deore hubs on 717 rims
2.4 Conti Mountain King Protections - 650g apparently
Nukeproof 760 bars - brand new and I am loving wide bars
SLX twin ring crankset plus bash guard
Can I realistically hope to shed much weight with new wheels? How much would I have to spend to get a pound or so off on the wheels?
What would you all do?
