I recently upgraded a few parts on my 2010 Mission 1. The wheels definitely needed an upgrade since the stock wheels were cheap and very heavy. I ended getting Hope Pro Evo 2's laced to Mavic 721's. So far, I love them! They are much lighter and stronger, rides so much better. Makes my mission feel like a completely different beast. I felt the stock handlebars we much too narrow for an all mountain bike at 670mm so I got a Answer Protaper 720mm bar and that added a lot more control to the front end. Lastly, I upgraded the stock cheap cranks to some Truvativ Hussefelts and wellgo pedals. At the same time these upgrades were done I decided to service the forks and rear shock. The forks got some enduro seals since the SKF seals I bought leaked horribly for the 2 weeks I had them, and the rear shock got a simple sleeve service. I have had my mission 1 for 1.5 years but being the bottom of the mission line, it could definitely use upgrades over time. However, out of the box for the price and performance nothing else out there comes close. I have enjoyed it from day one! Love this thing more every time I ride it.
