My new frame is here!

Came home to a big brown box on the porch today. The Jamis Aurora frame that I bought from another board member is here. Have a few more pats to gather, but here's what the build includes so far:

Aurora Frame
Dura Ace bar end shifters
Cane Creek brake levers
SRAM PG990 11-34 cassette
Sram Chain
XT rear derailleur
Sugino XD600 crank. (48-36-26)
Truvativ dual bolt seatpost
Brooks B17
Shimano BB (not sure of the model)
Oval Concepts bar

Still need front derailleur, stem, wheels and tires. The frame came with Nashbar long reach brakes. Will probably use them for now. If they work out ok, I'll leave them on, if not I'll change them later. I'm thinking Jandd racks front & rear, but don't know at this point.

I know, this thread is worthless without pics. I'll post some as the build progresses. First, it's going to the shop to have the BB shell chased & faced.
