Well I ordered my new hardtail frame a few days ago. I already have a lot of the parts but need to order the rest of the build later this week. Thought I would get some opinions before I finalize the build. This bike is basicly going to be built for smoother races only. I already have my Ellsworth Truth for the more technical courses and 24 hour races. I don't want to dump a lot of money into this bike since it is not going to be my primary bike.
Anyway, here it is:
18" Ellsworth Enlightenment frame
Rock Shocks SID Team fork with remote lockout
FSA XC-300 disc wheelset
Magura Marta SL disc brakes - already have
Thomson stem - already ordered
Thomson seatpost - already have
FSA K-Force cabon flat bar
Single Track solutions bar ends
Fizik Aliante Saddle - already have
FSA Carbon Pro crankset- already have
American Classic ISIS bb - already have
Crank Bros eggbeaters sl - already have
Shimano XT front derailleur - already have
Shimano XT cassette - already have
SRAM X.9 shifters
SRAM X.9 rear derailleur
SRAM PC 970 chain
Salsa Juegos de Fuegos grips
FSA Orbit X headset
Stan's no tubes rim strips
Haven't decided on tires yet, probably going with Continental Escape / Explorer. That combination just really seems to work well around here.
Anyway, any thoughts or suggestions?
I may be fat but I'm slow enough to make up for it.
