-Thompson seatpost
-Cheap carbon stem and bar on CRC
-Nukeproof seatclamp
-XT/XTR/eggbeater pedals

What do you think about my build?

    You've bought the wrong bike. If you're planning on changing that much you should've bought a more expensive bike to begin with!

    2 pairs of pedals?

    Bar ends? It's not 1986 anymore!

    Greer is right, why buy a bike to chage forks, wheels and the entire drivetrain......nuts

    You haven't mentioned changing the headset and the frame, but you're planning to change everything else. I suggest you get a headset and frame so that you can transfer the components off your current bike (with which you claim to be happy) onto it - that way you get two bikes for the price of two
