I think wheels would be in interesting idea, if only because I’ve thought about it before as well. Typically wheels cost about $250 a set for Douglas Mags but I know in the Route 66 race at Badger everybody was running the cheap polished aluminum wheels because they were reacting to the heat better. If you can get carbon wheels that work well for at most $200 you’d do pretty well selling them I’d say. Tie rods are a little iffy since I’d rather have a weak tie rod rather than a more complex and expensive component, but a steering column would be noticeable I think. I never put thought into pedals or heel stops so I’m not sure about them
