KH 29 Frame, have it stripped and powdercoated for ~$35
KH Freeride 47mm Rim, wide and strong
KH Freeride Seat, cushy
KH Adjustable seat post with new forged base, stronger than pinned style
Nimbus Hub with double butted spokes and SS nips, strong and light
Nimbus Venture II cranks, 150-165, whatever your perference, lightweight and strong, low Q for better clearance and smoother spinning.
Odyssey Twisted PC pedals, light and less pedal bite
Magura Frankenbrake from Brycer, more range, less grabby
KH Touring bar or custom grab handle (see my thread on revews)
Maxxis Ardent 2.4 with HD tube, best 29er tire yet!

-Disc brake set up using bearing holder styled hanger, would require a different cranks, a little more expensive than rim brakes
-Triton ti frame, more dollars.
-K1 160 cranks, these are what I ride now, heavy like Moments, but the only 160 cranks available.
