    New Giant XTC Composite 1 2012. Advice Wanted

    My first post on this forum.
    So, Just purchased a Giant XTC Composite 1 brand new from my LBS I used to work at and walked out the door with my brand new bike for only $1800.00. not too bad if you ask me. Anyways, My question is what do you think is a "must have" upgrade. I already have a great saddle, and awesome Flat Pedals. (yes i am sticking with the flats). I've been getting into XC again and i am loving it. Would Love any suggestion I can get! I am a relativity new rider to XC.

    Do you have a suggestion, something with a good "bang for my buck"?

    ArchEx rims, SuperComp spokes, brass nipples any front hub that is light and has changeable caps like Hope or Stan's. For the rear I like Dt star ratchets(36) but you may have to spend time looking for a deal.
    ith a Park TM-1 you can lace your own.
    If you can use your bike shop in to get a deal on the $1200 Specialized Roval Carbons that could be a nice option.
