Two sets of wheels and an angleset and you'll be set. Leave the angleset in all the time and swap the wheels as needed.
Tires are the biggest weight suck on my 29r. 1200g front, 990g rear. If i built a set of reasonable carbon wheels and put trail spec tires on I could drop over 500g of (rotating) weight.
I lost over a kilo by switching to XTR Trail Wheels and Specialized 2.3 tires on the Spider 29c, previous wheels were custom build (to be bombproof) Hope Pro4 heavy gauge spokes to Arc30 rims with Minion TW 2.5f/2.4r tires, shaved another half kilo or so by going to XTR 11 from Eagle GX - XTR9000 can be had for a massive discount over MSRP now and it's sooooooo smooth.
Number one way to make your suspension feel better, your bike feel more nimble and accelerate better. All things that track well towards making your bike feel more XC like.
