    Back after several years..bought an EL MARIACHI...now what????

    So I recently picked up a used El Mariachi LE 2007 frame in a green color (for $175..seemed fair after seeing prices) and a random blue el mar fork ($100...wasn't much to choose from)...I want to run maybe a 42T front crank and not sure on a rear cassette yet...Also, I am thinking of running just a single rear disc brake and only rear shifter to keep it simple yet funcional. I am not bombing down hills or anything. I haven't been in the MTB game for almost 10 years...a lot has changed. What are some good add-ons nowadays? I am probably gonna make it fancy and do blue pedals and maybe blue crank or blue chain thingy that covers the frame...I dont even know what those are called. Any tips or pointers would be appreciated before I walk into a local shop and buy whatever they suggest.
