Hey guys,
I regularly check this forum but this is my first post.
I'm looking to lighten up my 2014 Stumpy. I don't want to spend huge amounts of cash hence why i went the comp version and not the carbon.
It's an AM bike, but i generally ride XC trails with small-mid jumps here and there. When riding and jumping it feels a little heavy and sluggish.
Below are the specs from the Specialized website:

SEATPOST: Specialized Command Post BlackLite, 3-position, adjustable height w/ air spring, remote operated, single bolt head, 30.9mm, S: 100mm, Others: 125mm travel
SEAT BINDER: Command Post, 7050 hard anodized alloy, single bolt, 34.9mm

The formula brakes kept losing pressure so I upgraded them to XT's, and the stock Specialized grips were too thin for my preference so i put some thick race face ones on there. I also put my prologo saddle from my previous bike for comfort.
Given Specialized use a lot of custom/stock SRAM components it's hard to find the weights online to know what is worth upgrading? Does anyone know the weights for any of these stock components?

So, where will I get the most bang for my buck? I'm thinking in order of weight savings:
Wheels - Preferably something UST ready
Crankset - Not sure what to aim for with weight here? The stock has an alloy bash guard which im sure weighs it down. I've never bought a new crankset before, will any BB30 set be compatible with the SRAM PF30?
Handlebars - I enjoy the 750 mm wide bar. Wouldn't want to go much shorter than 700 mm
Stem - The stock one is short, like 50 mm

Any suggestions? Please give weights, or advise of what kind of weights you think I should be aiming for as i look around online. Also the bike is full black, with some red highlights so anything matching that colour scheme would be appreciated
