sounds good... but save yourself a TON of cash, ditch the X.0 and use X.9. The only difference is the weight and it's not really worth the price increase. Also, ditch the Hayes brakes and go with a set of Avid Juicy 7's if you really want hydros. Go with the BB7's if you're cool with mechs. I'd probably also go with a FSA, Truvativ, or RaceFace crankset and BB instead of the Shimano stuff. Outside of that, great choices on the components.
