Bike parts from my previous ride.

Thomson Elite Seatpost
80 mm Turbolite CNC machined Stem (popular branded stems are either 70mm dh or 90mm xc lengths with no 80mm available)
Easton CT2 Monkey Lite Carbon Fiber riser bar
WTB Rocket V saddle (not a light XC racer saddle but very comfortable as it is well padded for the sit bones with a anatomic groove down the middle).
2nd Generation Truvativ Stylo with sealed ISIS bottom bracket (at the time lighter than XTR).
Shimano M520 SPD Pedals
Avid Mechanical brakes with Jagwire cables, front rotor 200mm, rear 160mm with Avid levers (I’m partial to mechanical brakes as they are easy to maintain, though I’m eyeing a set of Magura Martas).
ODI Ruffian grips
Generic neoprene chainstay protector
Deore directional hubs, Mavic 36h 223 disc rims, 2.1 Maxxis Hard Drive tires, Asahi made in Japan double butted spokes (the hubs are designed so you can replace broken spokes with out the need to remove the cog or rotors the problem is that it is heavy).
