Crank, Tires, bar, stem, post, seat, etc. Maybe 300 retail.
So I paid to change out:
Crank/bearings - $60
Headset/Stem - $30
Tires - $70
Saddle is just a take off I got from the LBS a while back, pretty simple standard cheap MTB/Road sadle.

Just did the bb. I found plenty of grease but an oddly tightened set up. I dunno what results you guys got adjusting the stock bb but the new YST...

rough guess right now is a respectable 40#. Steel stem & steel bars - 400m seat post isn't exactly light, the cranks are remarkably lighter...

Quite the ripper now.
I've been wondering about the stock seat post, is it Alu or Steel? how long is it?
