That's a sweet book! I love hardbacks!

But, how do you build up a book? Change the binding? What?

What book is it? Who's the author?

Oh wait, you mean the frame. Oh yeah, it's nice too!

Titanium...oooohhhhhh.......drool!

Gee! I like the picture of the cowboy, too.

OK. So, details. How you gonna build her up? What fork? Rims? Hubs? Tires? Crankset? Are you going to use a chain tensioner?

Enquiring minds want to know!

I had the previous frame built up as a single, but I think I'll gear this one.

I have ordered a Manitou Black Elite 80/100 fork. The old drivetrain will go on: 2x9, XTR front mech and cassette, SRAM 9.0sl rear mech and shifters, race face cranks, race face ti bb.

Avid mechanical discs will handle stopping duties and I think I'll put on a set of the Crossmax XL disc wheels.

What's your goal weight (bike)? Looks to be LIGHT! I'd like to give it a try - but the big technical rocks keep calling me to the DARK hefty travel side...
