My new build...
Haven't been on in awhile, just thought I'd update everyone on what I'm up to (I know you all were wondering
2004 17" Kona Coiler 5" travel, w/ Push Industries/Fox Vanilla rear shock
Salsa Gordo rims laced 36h/3x to Deore hubs w/DT Competition 1.8/2.0 spokes
SRAM X.7 shifters + rear der.
Shimano LX front der.
Avid SL levers
Avid BB5 mech. discs
Rockshox Tora 318 Motion Control/U-turn 5" travel coil fork
FSA Pig headset (set up loose ball, of course)
Titec Ithys Amore saddle
Shimano LX crankset, set up 36/26 w/ e13 clear bashguard
Truvativ XR 90mm 31.8 stem
Truvativ Hussefelt 50mm 31.8 riser bar (may get swapped for something w/ less rise)
Crank Bros. Mallet C pedals
I'm still waiting on a few parts, but I'll post pics as soon as its done. I laced the rear wheel last night and realized that I'm going to be pushing a lot of weight around this summer. Oh well, what doesn't kill you only makes you stronger, right?
