Obviously not on the bike ;) .
Seriously, Giant aluminium ALUXX framesets are known to be pretty light.
I bet the fork is a whale though...( Advanced-Grade Composite, Alloy OverDrive 2 Steerer, 12mm Thru-Axle :? )...
The rest is in the "standard boat anchor" weight category.

It’s certainly not the wheels, unbelievably heavy.

Replacing most components will lead to fairly substantial weight gains. Crankset (almost groupset as a whole), wheels are going to be the best weight savings.

Seatpost is as light as you'll get (presuming it is the carbon one), due to lack of compatitbility with third party seatposts.
