So far changes from standard:
Rear Skewer
Ritchey WCS Foam Grips
Easton EC70 carbon flat bar
160mm front rotor
Superstar 34t Narrowwide chainring plus shorter bolts
Added Shimano M540 pedals
Changed to tubeless
Only other bits needed are a lighter rear rotor and carbon seatpost.

It is an absolute dream to ride, the frame is really stiff and for me this is perfect, it climbs with ease, is as nimble as a 26" in the single track but does give the extra speed gains on the fast flat sections.
