Hello I am from the Netherlands and this is my bike. I ride on a Trek 8500. Original it weighs 10,5kg and by tuning it now weighs under 9,5 kg. I am still tuning the bike till it weighs under the 9kg.

Tuning list:
- Magura Durin SL fork
- Sram XX group
- Tune Bubu headset

My bike :mrgreen:

Sweet .
At this this point there are so many little things that you can swap to reduce weight of your bike such as
Stem to Syntace
seatpost to KCNC
Handle bar to KCNC And changing our to ZTR will save a lot of weight as well
