    Can This Bike Be Had?

    This is probably a silly question, but I am looking for a new bike and I would really like to have it come from the factory with:

    Mavic tubeless wheels
    Disc brakes F and R
    High quality front shock
    Full suspension
    XTR components

    I would really lilke to keep the total cost to less than 3K.

    Can this bike be had? I really have not sone much research, but I thought I would ask for opinions. I am not hard on equipment and I don't have any reservations about frame materials (no need for 1 lb frames) as Crome-Moly steel still makes a fine frame set.

    Any thoughts and opinions would be much appreciated.

    PS Avid mechanical brakes are coming on a tandem we just bought. How are they for MTB's?

    Thanks for the help,

    Steve Marley

    try speedgoat, they do custom builds and I think I saw a full xtr build kit for $1500 a while back, you just have to finda frame/fork/wheels/brakes for $1500. good luck.
