That looks pretty nice! I've not bothered with nicer seatposts, but I do find the multi-piece clamps to be a nuisance. It'll be interesting to hear what you think of the Microshift trigger(?) shifters. Their rear derailers are quite nice, and their left-hand friction barcon shifters are supposed to be excellent as well.
It is hard to keep track of which bikes use what size screws for the rear rack mounts, even stock. I like how my old Raleigh USA uses M6 for the rear mounts and the mid-fork mounts, but I'm not much inclined to hog out a functional M5 mount just for the sake of uniformity. At some point I should make some extra struts for my cheap rear rack to fit with the low-angle seatstays on this bike and my wife's Globe Carmel ....
