    Help me decide please!

    I'm the market for a fast, lightweight XC race bike. I've decided on the Sette Razzo Carbon 29er, but I'm not sure which would be better. Just so you know, I'm 5'6, 140 pounds and ride generally smooth single track and fire roads.

    The pre-built bike:Price- $4000

    Sette Razzo SC XX 10 Speed 29er Carbon Bike - Gloss Black with Crimson Red | Sette | Brand | www.PricePoint.com

    How I would build it:
    Sette Razzo SC 29er Carbon Hardtail Frame-600
    XX1 Drive Train-1288
    Fork:Rock Shox SID XX 100 29er Suspension Fork - 15x100-860
    Brakes: Shimano XT- 130 x2
    Rotor-53 x2
    BB: SRAM/Truativ Pressfit BB30-46.98
    Headset: Cane Creek 40 Integrated Carbon Headset- 62.98
    Stem: Thomson Elite Stem- 60
    Wheelset: Easton EA90 XC 29 2012- 700
    Bars: Easton EC70- 80
    Tires: Schwalbe Racing Ralph 2.1s- 42 x2
    Seatpost: ? ~ 100

    Build price comes to around $4200

    Any thoughts, input, or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    No brainer build yourself. Your price is close plus you get what you want and the fun of doing it yourself. I bet if you go into any descent lbs and throw that list at them minus the frame and they should be able to order a lot of the parts cheaper. I do know you can get a better price on that fork for sure.
    And I love beer!!
