Had this given to me recently :D
The things I've changed on it are:
Wheels - now Mavic D521CD's on Shimano XT750 hubs
Saddle - was a Scott but I like the WTB saddles
Pedals - Crank Bros 50/50 XX
Bars - were Scott flat bars, now risers :twisted:
Stem - was a Kore Lite 3, 130mm. Now Zzyzx 100mm as I wanted something a little shorter.
Forks are P2's
Put some purple bolts on also.

It has been used, as can be seen in the pix.

It's built up for commuting (hopefully) but it'll be good for trails with a change of tyres.

edit:
Bars are now FLAT Specialized 'WideBoys' which have wedge-type bar-ends fitted.
Pedals are DMR V12's
The Kore stem is back on.
Tyres are still the slicks but I've Panaracer Fire XC's waiting to go on for the trails.

Nice multi-purpose tool, good crack. 710mm is fairly wide! I still find my 660mm bars wide at times, haha.

It's the main reason I stopped using flats & bar-ends, I could never find them wide enough. I use 680mm risers but wouldn't mind some 700+
