Ok so recently I picked up a 14 Fuel EX8 29er for my off-road rides so I'm going to be making my 8.5 DS a little more road worthy. First I'm going to swap out the tires for something more street oriented and then try to cut some weight off it cause it's a tank. I'm looking at carbon stem, bars, seat post and lighter wheels. Also a new seat that's more comfortable and better lighter pedals. Here are pics of the two bikes:

The bike already has SLX running gear and brakes so I don't need to change them. I know it's not going to be any where near as light as a road bike but I should be able to cut a few pounds off it which will make it more enjoyable for those long street rides. Any tips or suggestions on what to get???
