Looking good. Be sure to post a ride report about your fork. I've been considering getting a Revelation 426 Coil U-Turn lately...

build

Don't do what I did and leave the brakes for last!All hyped on my new build just had to see what it felt like took off around the block bare handle bars no front derailuer,chain on middle ring/small cog,come flying up the driveway,CRAP no brakes!Quickly diverted to the grass and put feet down.My friend had a good laugh.Guess I did to.
By the way,nice looking bike.Looks lighter than my hard tail.

The revelation is amazing. oops, you said Coil and I have an air. OP, is your fork an air or a coil? I can't really tell from the pics.
