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

Avid mechs are good brakes and will work fine.

With xtr...and mavic tubeless...thats pushing it but if you ebayed it and found parts on close you might be able to :)

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.
