I hear ya. I found it funny on Burleys that the bikes come with a mix of good components and shotty components. Like on my 2003 model Canto, they came with a Truvativ Elita crank. It is a really nice crankset. But the derailleur is like an Alivio or something like that.
I switched my shifters to X.9 shifters and got a X.9 derailleur on the back. Very nice stuff. Recently, I redid the X.9 twift shifters to X.9 triggers. Very nice
I have not replaced the front derailleur yet. But I am eyeballing the new X.9 front derailleur (I am not really a Shimano fan). Also in the works for this next year on projected upgrades are Velocity Deep V rims. I think that I may also look at the Terracycle riser and bars. But who knows.
