I really thought that I was going to hit the 25 lb mark the other day with my build, that is until I realized that I forgot to add in the brake calipers. The calculated weight of the bike is now 11.61 kg or 25.6 lbs.

There are three areas that I can save some weight for the biggest bang for the buck: stem, cassette, and saddle. Also, I can save a few grams when I cut the bars down because they are way too wide!
Are you going 1x?
You'll loose a little more weight removing the big and little ring and adding a MRP 1.X chain guide or something similar (my Evolve cranks w/ 33t Homebrewed ring, BB and fixing bolt weigh 780gs; weighed it last night).
If you use regular grips you'll save a little more weight too. I like Yeti Speed grips (no silly foam grips).
You could go with an Ikon for a rear tire to shed even more weight.
You should be able to find lighter barends too (or ditch them altogether).
Yeah, I might drop the bash guard and get the Paul chain guide. Probably get a Ritchey Stem and Saddle to get some savings there, as well as cutting my bars down a bit. Losing the barends would help, too, obviously.
If you are riding off road DO NOT get the Paul chainguard. It is not very effective.
I misspoke, I meant the MRP but that is good to know to stay away from the Paul.
Not sure what cassette you're running but if you get the pg 990 11-32 it's fairly light and you can usually find them for <$70.
