so i had finally had enough of the crappy stock suntour that came on my P1 and had my lbs order me a rockshox Recon race 120mm and man is it an amazing upgrade i love it the feel and adjustment is a night and day difference.
now at the same time i kept having to get my rims trued after almost every ride so we talked about it at my lbs and the owner told me he had a set of mavic deetracks in stock and man are these rims sick not only do they look sick they are very stiff and strong i now love the way my bike rides it made today much more enjoyable on the trails :thumbsup:

the new fork is a 20mm axle so thats the other reason i needed new wheels and these have an adapter for running a standard QR i do believe but i love my 20mm i no longer have to worry about hurting my tiny axle the only down side is removing the front wheel is no longer the fastest thing lol

only reason i ask is because i have a older recon that is a quick release. but any way thanks for the help enjoy the up grades

for a seats the only way to go is wtb and seat posts if you wanna spend the money you should get a joplin r or some thing similar

For the seat, it really depends on preference, but ive seem to have great luck the with WTB SpeedV. I eventually wore mine out (came stock on the bike) and got the SpeedV pro gel. It took a while to break in, but it feels great now. Just a suggestion though.

Besides that, great bike, and yeah upgrading does seem to make it feel even that much better.

that is a remote lock out all it does is allow me to lock out my shock using that switch instead of having to reach down and do it on the fork
