Hi I'm new to the forum, but have used some advice from the site to build my new bike, below. I love some of the bikes listed but they wouldn't take my riding. My bike's not a record breaker, but is strong as I ride really heavy off-road (in UK) and it has 5" front, 4" rear suspension. I don't really know where to go next with 'tuning' to make it lighter. So any suggestions welcome.
