Sorry for the delayed reply.
The Rocky Mountain is labeled with a "Special Edition"
It has a Vanilla Float R rear shock, and what I'm told is a Manitou Mars (yellow) Front Fork.
It has an XTR rear derailleur, and XT front, Rolf Hubs.
It's an awesome bike, but I don't know if any of the parts are upgrades.
For kicks, here's the Niner
I ended up ordering a Salsa Casseroll, kind of a different direction than the Bianchi's I had been looking at, but I think it will be a better all around bike for me.
