I want to replace the following:
CO2 pump with 2 cartridge (163g) with hand pump
Blackburn multitool (138g)
Any suggestions? I plan to remove my saddle bag and hopefully find a lightweight bag to put all these with my park patch ans tubes.

Weightweenie pumps can be had for 39 grams/$20.

I can't say I'd want a pump that requires a press hold, and 3-500 strokes to get back on the road. There are now lightweight options (I saw a Bontrager branded one"air rush pro" 68 grams) that is a lightweight pump AND allows use of CO2.
Edit: Google this pump, I have no experience with it: http://www.bikesweets.com/Barbieri_NANA ... i-nana.htm
If you want to keep all your stuff in a bag/seatbag, it's tough to beat the little Blackburn Barrier. I weighed one in a store, 22 grams. Waterproof. Shockingly light. Hardly makes it worth giving up a seatbag.
I carry a very small multi-allen tool (Topeak?), tire levers, a light inner tube and a few patches and glue.

It also leaves more room in the pockets for clothes and food. I do a lot of long rides and need to carry a lot of food.
I like the Lezyne Road Drive (medium). It works really well as a pump, much better than the light weight pumps I have used. Even with my skinny climbers arms I can get the tire up to full pressure. And having a hose makes it so much easier to actually use without leaking or even breaking the valve stem off. Don't get a Lezyne pump that is intended for MTB use unless you have really strong arms. They pump more volume but require more force to get to a high pressure.
I used the old Ritchey CPR-9 tool. They're 58g and have a chain tool in addition to the usual stuff. I wish they still made them. I have never needed the chain tool myself but other people on group rides have. I also made some emergency spoke wrenches which only weigh about 2g each. (the CPR-9 has a spoek wrench but I have used it enough to round it out some). I have a Blackburn Toolmanator-12 (108g) on the rain bike.
How much tool you need depends on the rides you do and if you have people who are willing to come pick you up if you're stuck. I ride to some remote places where cell phones don't work, and even when they do I am reluctant to call for help unless I really need it.
