What have you changed with it?
Before I start, there’s nothing wrong with the stock components of the older Osprey. I’m just really superstitious about things like tyre choice, handlebar tape and black cats. I guess I’m a bit brand loyal.
The wheels and tyres went first, replaced with Mavic CXP 22s and Conti gator skins, relatively inexpensive. Besides, with the roads around here, there’s no point having anything super fancy under you.
Next, the seat post and saddle. I prefer an MTB style, because of pot holes. Fi`zi:k Nisene, with a longer seat post cannibalised from an old Carrera. Standardised fittings on the Osprey make this very easy.

SPD pedals in white of course. These are actually amazing. Actually, you can ride them with flip flops, walking boots, barefoot or even Road shoes – believe it or not! Last, inexpensive ebay Carbon forks with a carbon bung because sexy.
