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

    right now its about 20-21 pounds, was 16.5 before i put on the wheels and tires today. Hopefully going to keep it under 30. im going to put on avid bb7 discs. and for pedals just some platforms for now, not ready to go clipless yet

    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.
    Erwin Schroedinger will kill you like a cat in a box. Maybe.

    I used to have K2 and I liked it a lot.
    Looks very good.
    Used to ride BMC SLC01, CAAD, FELT, Cervelo P3 but now I ride FUJI SST and TCR advanced and CAAD9.
