    Kitsuma - old new ride

    I recently found a 2002 Litespeed Kitsuma frame on Ebay - Very good condition - I have always loved this bike. I own a 1998 Litespeed Owl Hollow HT (which I bought new), but I am looking to build this up as something not so XC race specific - I plane to race it in endurance mtb races. The frame weighs 4 lbs even - I would like a 25 lb bike with 5" front travel - my question is the parts spec - cost is not a big issue, but reliability is. I am thinking a Fox front fork with the 15mm axle - other than that I have not built a bike in a while - suggestions.

    Go discs is possible.

    It's a disc only frame - so that is the plan

    Dminor does live around here - I've seen him at a couple of races, but our styles are different.

    He may be older than most here - but he's probably faster than most here.

    He's a DH guy - I moonlight at DH races now and then but I'm a endurance guy, XC racer at heart.
