    05 Rockhopper Comp upgrades?

    I have recently bought 05 Rockhopper Comp. I was going to upgrade it to a Giant STP0, but under the fiance's instructions, will have to make do with just upgrading a few parts rather than buying another new bike. So far I've put a set of Hayes HFX 9 6" disc brakes on it, as well as changing the pedals and saddle, although I wish I'd read mtbr before buying the brakes as I've had nothing but problems with them so far...
    I was thinking of changing the forks to 05 Marzocchi DJ3s and running a 1x9 setup as I mianly ride street with a few jumps thrown in for fun. Might look at chaning the brakes too, possibly to some cheap Saint's I've found on eBay.
    Can anyone help me out with any recomendations?

    I have an 05 Rockhopper Comp and the best (and coolest) modification I have done so far was an Evil 13 SRS with Bashgaurd and an Evil 13 36T chainring. It eliminates the front shifter and derailuer. Its been great, not really a performance modification, but just a inexpensive mod thats very cool.
