folding tires, cut your seat post, remove brake if you dont mind brakeless, any parts that break look for lighter new parts to buy

you go on and on and on fiding ways to make your bike lighter. basically all you can do is buy lighter parts. you can chop your seat post downa few inches maybe(depending on how long it is) but thats only like a few ounces. so, lighter tires, lighter stem, bars, plastic pedals, lighter fork, hubs, rims, blah blah... get what im saying? hope it helped

cut and drill holes through ur seat post.
plastic pedals
drill holes in the bars
if u hate brake less drill ur brakes
run with out a seat if u r that much of a weight weenie
Or u can hit up the gym and not be a weight weenie anymore

30 pound aint bad. If you like brakes, keep them. They will NOT add any noticable weight. You can cut your seat post down as long as the post goes to the bottom of the top tube. Lighter tires, and light tubes can save a pound or so. Light pegs, plastic pedals. So when you need new tires, you can try folding ones, if you dont want to spend that kinda money, there are some light tires out there. These are all on the cheap side. You could probly get down to 27-28 pounds by this.
