I used to have the 2000 XO1( Cool Gold color). I would have kept it if I had the correct frame size. If I remembered correctly it had a full on RSX Gruppo w/ Rolf Vector Comp wheels w/ IRC cross tires. It was a fun ride but on the stiff side. 3 days after I had it I replaced pretty much everything for all out trail riding. Here was my upgrade:

1. Swapped the the 110 Icon stem for a 120
2. Got rid of the skinny 32 IRC Cross tire for the more beefy IRC 38c Vcross
3. Better brakes w/ better pads
4. Titec MTB Seatpost( gone is the stock silver generic)
5.Kept the Bonty FS seat
6. Swapped the drivetrain for a more true dirt worthy components.( XT 44/32 crank, XT rear derailluer,XT front derailluer,747 pedals, UN72 BB)

Happy Trails,

I have a Trek X01 which I use for CycloCross racing.
I would have thought that for commuting and easy off road trails little needs upgrading. Wait until things need replacing unless there are any items you are un happy with.
For cross racing and more technical off road riding I have;-
Replaced the tires according to conditions (Eg Michelin Mud), upgraded brakes (I have put on some non V XT which I got cheap and work well), upgraded rear mech when old one broke (I put on Shim 105), changed to Time ATAC pedals (cause they are the best for quick dismounts and not clogging up). Have Fun !

I think that bike came stock with standard road gearing. For trail riding change a 44,46 or 48 tooth big chainring. If you need extra speed for commuting it might make sense to get a second crank (one that uses the same BB spindle as the current) and swap them as the conditions demand.

CHEERS!
