I suspected with the MTB Forum Crash I would lose the original post. Damn there was so much good information and suggestions I was wanting to read and research. There were some great recommendations to wheels and hubs, as well as component selection.... Thanks to everyone that posted in the original thread, and please feel free to submit your comments and suggestion again if you care to.
My New Project, a 2003 Rocky Mountain ETSX-70. This will be my first FS MTB, and I'm looking forward to seeing how it performs. My trails is comprised mainly of Single Track and Technical Single track. No real wide fire roads to bomb down .
The fork I'm planning on is a Fox Talas 32, however I was considering an older Fox Float RC, or even anything else that would not be a total arm and leg.
The project build and parts update may move a long at Glacial speed, as I have a lot to learn again regarding MTB equipment, however I'm in no real hurry, yet.
