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.
