    i've been riding XC for about 7 months and i want to get involved in some racing. i just put together a new bike from new parts and parts left over from my '04 hard rock and i want to get it as light as i can, or at least shed most of the unnecessary pounds. i don't really know what areas are considered "heavy" from those that are fairly light. i was hoping you guys (or gals) could help point out which areas i could improve on as far as weight goes. here is my current setup:

    Frame: 2003 Jamis Komodo 21"(4.0lbs)
    F. Derailleur: Shimano LX (123 grams)
    R. Derailleur: Shimano Deore (300 grams)
    Fork: Marzocchi MZ Comp 100mm, steel steerer, elastomer/coil spring
    Headset: Cane Creek ZS-2 (117 grams)
    Brakes: Tektro IO mechanical disc brakes 6" rotors
    Crank: Truvativ ISO Flow, alloy
    Chainrings: 42t Cr-Mo x 32t heat-treated Cr-Mo x 22t heat-treated Cr-Mo
    Shifter/Brake Levers: Deore Mega 9 (439 grams)
    Cassette: 9 speed Shimano XT
    Rims: Alex DM-20 (around 600 grams)
    Tires: Specialized Enduro Sport, wire bead
    Handlebar: Alloy, 38mm rise, 9 degree sweep
    Stem: Specialized Mobius, alloy, 10 degree rise
    F. Hub: Joy-Tech, double sealed loose ball w/ alloy QR
