lighter tyres and more comfortable bits and bobs?

(not trying to be a D-Bag, but I saw your thread had gone unanswered and thought i'd bump it back up to the top where people can see it :cool: )

How are you using the bike? road and trail, or massive crazy off-road stuff. If mostly on packed ground, get some 1.5" tyres with a reasonable tread, like Continental Town and Country. I've alsways thought durability over weight for an off-road bike.
