    And so it begins.

    After nearly a year of no mountain biking, but plenty of road and cross racing, I had to do it again. Not only ride.. but race. So now I'm building up a mountain bike. Fuji Mt. Fuji pro carbon hardtail.. thinking 22-23 pounds.

    Me too. It has a green logo on the stay, the slash on the stay, one on the seat tube, and a pin stripe on the top tube.

    I think it needs these.

    That would work too. I don't really like the idea of one set hand position for grips.

    I'm actually using DT swiss hubs and rims that I already had, and the headset is integrated. I'm not sure on the crank yet. Light, whatever I pick.

    I'll be sure to post progress pics. It will be a while unfortunately.. I'm not cheaping out on the build and can't afford too much now. It will be sweet though.

    I chose a hardtail because I don't think I need a FS bike for XC races, I'm also a weight weenie and can't nearly afford a weight weenie FS frame.

    Sounds like sweet rims, nice use of contrast front and back spokes. What tires?

    Das foto - not sure on tires yet. Thinking S-works fast trak maybe. 2.0 or 1.95 width and light are my requirements.

    Has anyone tried the Schwalbe Racin Rons. Look to be light and durable if a tad pricey.

    mmm Mt. Fuji. We had one at the shop that was a size too big for me. Why we had a 21" frame in is beyond me. If it was a 19" I wouldv'e been all over it! Awesome bike. You have a great base. Ride the bajesus out of it!
    Some people are just like Slinky's. Not really good for anything but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.
