    Looks like a pretty nice build. Don't forget to order a front derailleur and bottom bracket though, doesn't look like they are included with the kit (not listed anyway).
    I may be fat but I'm slow enough to make up for it.

    Hmmm, for some reason the bottom bracket and front derailleur are pictured though, may want to ask them when you place the order.

    Cool, as soon as you figure out your fork you are going to have a pretty nice bike. I can't wait to read a write-up after the first ride.

    Will all the parts fit on my frame? On the site it gives me 3 options for bottom bracket
    1. 68X121mm
    2. 73X121mm
    3. 72x126mm
    On jamis site it says the BB is 68X 113mm. Whats the deal?

    For the front derailleur I have no Idea, I know its top pull but i dont know the measurment. Pricepoint gives me 3 options:
    1.1 and 1/8
    2.1 and 1/4
    3.1 and 3/8

    jamis site says 31.8mm conventional clamp/top pull front. What to do?

    stem is 120mm.

    seatpost is 27.2mm

    should i go for 2.1 tires or 1.95?

    anything else i should look for before i buy this kit?

    I would go with 2.1" tires.

    For the front derailleur 31.8 mm converts to 1.25 inches. I believe conventional swing is top swing but I'm not going to swear to that one.

    As for the bottom bracket that usually has to do with the crankset as much as the frame. Talk to pricepoint about it, I believe you will go with the 68x121 though.

    I have no clue as to the rates in your area. It will probably be close to a overhaul without the bearing treatment

    You bought a kit and you don't know how to put a bike together????

    While you were at Pricepoint, you should have bought one of those cheapo LIFU toolkits so you'd have the tools.

    If you have any buddies who can put bikes together, I would suggest working with them so you get some of the "experience".

    You could have gotten some nicer pre-built bike for the $$$ you put into the build kit + frame + assembly. This is like buying a model and then paying someone else to put it together for you.

    My father can put it together, he has all the tools in the world, im just not sure he has the special tools to put someparts together. I bought the build kit and actually saved money. Frame + Bulid Kit + fork are $1,000, not many dual suspension bikes for 1,000 bucks. If there are they dont have lx components.

    Build it yourself. It's not all that difficult, and you can always post here for help. Use a fraction of the money you would have to spend to get a shop to build it to buy some tools. The experience you gain will save you time and money in the future. Enjoy your new ride.

    Thats not a bad idea, i just dont want to mess anything up. How much money does it cost for a mech to build the bike? That way i know how many tools i can afford. What special tools are needed? The fork to the frame is tricky without the tool right? Its hard to work on something that costs 1,000 of your hard earned money, especially if you havent done it before.

    I'm not sure what it will cost to have the work done. I do all my work myself. I have a suggestion. Take the frame, fork, headset, stem, and BB to a bike shop and have them install these parts. The rest of the parts are fairly simple. Get a book and some tools. There are plenty of books to choose from, I have this one; "Zinn & the Art of Mountain Bike Maintenance" by Lennard Zinn. If you have trouble with the derailleurs take it back to the shop for the final adjustments.

    That is EXACTLY what I was about to say. Thanks for saving me the time!! Good advice.

    Just call the bike shop yourself. How do we know what your local shop charges? Pick up the phone.

    No reason to apologize. IMHO it's just more efficient and accurate for you to check yourself. When you find out what your shop charges, post back here and I'm sure the good folks here will tell you if it's reasonable. Good luck with the new ride.
