Hey all! I picked up a roscoe 8 about 4 weeks ago.

Been having fun in it, and doing some upgrades.

I would like to try and get this hardtail into the 25-26 pound territory......

Current upgrade are:

-Rethnal carbon fatbars
-Rethnal apex stem 60mm
-Lizard skin lock on grips
-tubeless with Orange sealant/stems

Bike is sitting currently at 30.4 pounds.

Bike size is a LARGE

HOW THE HECK am I gonna get 4-5 pounds off this thing!? Any ideas!?

Assuming you have NX drivetrain that my fiancé’s Roscoe 8 came with...it’s quite heavy even compared to GX. Also the spindle bb they come with weight a ton. I switched hers out for a dub BB and GX everything a dropped a ton of weight.
