2019 Trek Stache 5 - what to upgrade?

I just had my LBS order a Stache 5 for me. I really wanted a Stache 7, but couldn't bring myself to spend the extra $600-$700. In an attempt to get the low gearing similar to the Stache 7, I am having him install a SunRace 11-46T cassette. He offered to set me up tubeless at no cost. Is there anything else that should be upgraded before I pick it up?

FWIW, even stock, this bike will be a significant upgrade for me. I am coming from a 17 year old Trek 4500.
