Sell the adjustable seat post, use a nice light weight hope one. Lighter bike and pounds in your pocket.  Wink

Dropper posts easily worth the 1/2lb extra. Tyres and wheels normally the best places to lose weight.

Get a new bike. They dont build them things to be light.

keep it and get stronger, Mark rode his alpine all over Wales last weekend and didn't seem to struggle. But wheels and tyres will make a difference before anything else.

Much respect to Mark for cranking that bike with a totally unsuitable single front ring round. No idea how he does it.

Sod single rings...... Granny ring for the win.

Mate just ride it and get stronger, as said I rode it at wales all week and did all the big rides, do you want a bike where you may have to say at some point I cannot do that jump/drop because of my bike?? I don't..

Also I do break bikes a lot so mine's built for strength.
