    XT Brakes
    Wheelset

    What kind if "Shimano" crankset? Your description is either half-hearted, or you have no idea.

    haha no its not half hearted, have absolutely no idea. It looks almost like the Deore but just says Shimano along the crank arm. The guy who sold me the whole build gave me a great deal but didnt know crap about the bike so im just going off of what i see. Here is a really crappy pic from when he was selling it.

    top cap.

    new housing (maybe red, or orange)

    after that, you should be set.

    i was nowhere close to being serious, but changing housing doesn't take *that* long...

    straitline pedals would be a nice upgrade actually...

    also shimano xt trail brakes if you want hydraulic, otherwise the bb7s aint bad...
