XT bottom bracket
Thompson seat post.
Fox Float RC23 shock w/ lockout
XT rear derailleur.
XT 9 speed cassette

Fork Rock – Shox Domain RC minor scratches on lowers (I have extra springs and top crown for it)
Bars – Giant contact 29″ length
Stem – Gravity light 40mm
Rear shock – Fox DHX 4.0 upgraded internals and serviced by Fox 450LB spring
Brakes – Avid Code (serviced and bleed) 8″
Shifter – Sram X9 9 speed and X9 derailleur
