    New build happening soon.

    So, I really like the feel of a hardtail for aggressive trail riding and DH, but since my Steelhead has **** the bed I'm getting another frame and building it up beefy.

    So far this is what I got:

    Frame: 2004 Norco Sasquatch or similar model (Manik, Rampage etc)
    Fork: Right now I have a 2003 DJ1, but I might be picking up a Stratos S8 Ultra
    Brakes: Hayes Nines at the moment.
    Wheels: Mavic 729 front and a 321 rear.
    Hubs: Formula.
    Drivetrain: Shimano XT rear dérailleur, XT shifters, and probably a Truvativ Box Guide.
    Bars/Stem: Azonic Chubby bar and Azonic Shorty stem.
    Cranks: FSA X-drive.
    Tires: 2.7 Lobo's.
    Pedals: Odyssey Jim Ceilencki.
    Seat and Post IRD post and Azonic Love seat.

    I think it'll be pretty sweet, as you may be able to tell I couldn't really give a damn about weight. Any suggestions on the build?

    are you big on dirt jumping? because an 05-generation p.2/3 frame will fit your bill, but will also be a LOT better for the jumps. either way though, a stratos s8 on a hardtail is super sketchy.

    Looks good...where did you get the frame from? I'm contemplating a similar build with my spare parts but haven't been able to find any cheaper Sasquatch/Manik frames.

    Bought it off of a guy on Pinkdyke.
