I agree with Dirtbikedude, except on the rims, I haven't seen the AtomLab rims hold up to well, their hubs are great though! For over all great rims I like the mavic rims(a bit pricey, but worth it) also sun rhino lights(mainly cause htey are cheap and hold up decently), very heavy though!
The avid brakes are good for an urban bike, but I personally like the hydro type for any type of DH/Freeride work, and looking at the new hope 6 piston brakes.... ooooooooo drool drool ooooooooo man I can't wait to by a set of them!
Go with a block style stem, like the RF diablos(spelling?) stem.
Derailure, I've always loved ESP, but that's a preferance thing, if you usually snap derailures from crashes go with shimano do to the ease of finding one at a local shop(less down time)
