i think that you have a pretty good setup there but the wheels are going to be a real weak point for you i think. an All mountain bike you want a wheel that strikes a compamise in strenght and weight. the ones you have and have listed are all very light and fine for XC but i'm pretty sure you will wish you had a wheel that was stronger in the short future. something like the crossmax SX or ST would be nice.

Considering the direction your wheelset thread went... I'd say you should worry less about looks/bling and worry more about getting some riding time in on her! Parts spec doesn't make the ride - the rider does. You have a GREAT bike - just ride it man!

Have FUN!
