Grand Bois Hetre tires @ 45-50 psi (650b wheels required), lower pressure for dirt and mean city streets, wide handlebar, and Cinelli gel cork ribbon tape.
Comfort upgrades for the rider: gel padded gloves, wide shoes, UV protective long sleeve jersey, Voler Sol Skin head covering. The Voler Sol Skin was a biggie for me, no more sunburned scalp or neck, cool head in the summer, warmer in the winter, traps sweat that would normally drip into the eyes & glasses, and improved helmet comfort.

Reason: separate bike & rider upgrade
