Speaking for the filthy bike on the back of my white van, I've replaced the touch points, drivetrain, brakes, wheels and dropper on my Slash. I run the larger size Easton lock-ons (38mm?), a mixed XT/SLX drivetrain and stoppers, a Highline 170 post, and Synthesis wheels wrapped in Minions. The most recent addition to the bike is a SQLab saddle which I really like. My buddy Greg at Butter Suspension here in Western Washington updated the Yari with Lyrik internals so it has a Debonair cartridge, a Charger 2 damper, and travel bumped to 170mm. The stock 9.7 spec was a little undergunned for me so I replaced these bits as they... uh... _wore out_.   Though I sometimes find myself a little 'overbiked', but this is my one and only steed. Like Kai, I ride everything with it - from local trails, shuttle days, and park laps. I have my eye on an EXT Storia v4... maybe one day after this virus madness is resolved and I am working normal hours.
