I am looking to shed some weight from my MTB, but the money is a bit tight, so looking for the cheapest weight reductions.
Firstthings first, I think the stem looks a bit stupid with a plus 17 rise, thinking of getting a plus 6 or even -6 for a bit more aressive feel.

Actually I dont know the weight of the bike at the moment.
I was initially thinking :
New lighter handlebars
Lighter stem with another rise.
Any other area´s where I can cut weight with our spending too much?
