New Parts for my Litespeed

I really like my Litespeed Toccoa, however I haven't bonded with it like I have my Merlin. I am thinking with a complete rebuilt/overhaul, it will be completely mine and no longer a used bike set-up by someone else. I've been buying bicycle parts on-line since November and I think I am done. Last night I bought some Avid Ultimate "V-brakes" with titanium bits last night from a friend, and I believe that is my ultimate purchase. The bike will now be completely rebuilt with the only original part will be the front derailleur (for now). I am hoping to get the weight of the bike to the 22 pound (10 kg) range. Currently it is slightly more than 24 pounds (~11 kg).
