    A nice wheelset. Something like Stans and go tubeless. I think I'm going to build up some P-35's next. Not sure on the hubs yet.

    I'd upgrade to a Niner One 9 if It were my KM.
    Authorities speculate that speed may have been a factor. They are also holding gravity and inertia for questioning.

    I don't know if these are upgrades since I just bought the frame set but here goes
    2012 22" frameset
    Salsa delgatto rims (ghetto tubeless) w/ Wtb exiwolfs
    XT cranks with candy 2ti pedals
    White industries 20t freewheel
    Thomson 410 setback post , Phenom 143 saddle
    Chris King no threads headset
    Thomson 140 stem w/ On One Mary bars, ergon gp1 grips
    BB7's 185 rotors F/R with sd7 levers

    Frame, brakes, grips and handlebars are the only things I bought new, everything else
    picked up on Craigslist, eBay or swapmeet
