Looking at the Strive CF 8.0 Race and wondering if there are some quick wins to lighten it? Seems like a nice bike for the price but a little on the heavy side. Link below if you want to see the spec!

I can probably copy paste the spec in if this post is too annoying to link through too :D

Thanks in advance! Tim

Easy to lighten, what you need to consider is the usage you'll put the bike to, and if you aren't putting it to the use where many lighter parts will start to compromise its ability then you bought the wrong bike!

With a bit of attention to detail you can save a bit, grips, rotors, bolts, shorten cables and hoses etc, a few minor parts like the seatpost clamp. Wheels you could go lighter with, won't be cheap though!
