Hubs: Hope Pro 2
Cranks: Normal XTR, they've removed the rings in favour of a Salsa ring + guard. Truvativ make some nice SS cranksets (Stylo OCT, Noir).
Brakes also look like Hope from what I can see. I have matching blue Juicy Ultimates on mine. Have fun!
That is correct Phat Slug. Hope, Hope...and more Hope. We had our good buddies over there whip us up some blue ano especially for the show (Interbike). I have seen the blue avids on them as well like what you are running and they are hot!
Those are the center lock hubs, and you probably have rotors in mind already, so I won't cover that part, but yes- these can be re-laced (If they are laced as 26 inch wheels now) to a good 29 inch (700c- it is the same!) rim. If you want to stick with Salsa products I would recommend the Semi rim. If you are intending to run a tubeless set up, then I would recommend a Stan's Arch rim.
You can get a single speed conversion kit for your geared rear freehub. I recommend a Surly conversion kit that includes spacers and a slick looking lock ring. Get a wide based cog in the tooth count you desire. Again, a Surly cog is great, but lighter aluminum cogs can be had from Niner Bikes, Misfit Psycles, Endless Cogs, and others.
