I simply cannot wait to build this up.

That's a sweet book! I love hardbacks!
But, how do you build up a book? Change the binding? What?
What book is it? Who's the author?
Oh wait, you mean the frame. Oh yeah, it's nice too!

Gee! I like the picture of the cowboy, too.
OK. So, details. How you gonna build her up? What fork? Rims? Hubs? Tires? Crankset? Are you going to use a chain tensioner?
Enquiring minds want to know!

I had the previous frame built up as a single, but I think I'll gear this one.
I have ordered a Manitou Black Elite 80/100 fork. The old drivetrain will go on: 2x9, XTR front mech and cassette, SRAM 9.0sl rear mech and shifters, race face cranks, race face ti bb.
Avid mechanical discs will handle stopping duties and I think I'll put on a set of the Crossmax XL disc wheels.
