I love this bike. Upgrades are in the works. They include: Black Velocity VXC rims, XT rear hub, Mountain King 2.2 rear tire/stock Prowler SL 2.1 in front, and going tubeless. Probably going to go carbon with the handlebars and seat post but only after I get the new Truvativ 3.3 OCT crankset. I'll post new pics after the upgrades are done. BTW, I have SPD pedals not those crappy ones in the pic.
