    Very nice. Please describe your drivetrain. It is hard to see in the pictures.

    Drivetrain details please and a ride report. I am building up a Bander too, same color as yours. Love the Copper, or Orange as my kids call it. It will be another month or so before I finish mine. Looking forward to getting out to ride it.

    Just finished yesterday, got two rides in on it today. Except for swapping out the seat I am stoked. I cleaned sections I never have before, WOOT!

    Sparky, that's a nice solid build. Do let us know how you like the ride. I have my frame, fork and drivetrain. I have the parts for the wheelset (spokes, hubs, rims) on order, which should all be here by the weekend. The weather report is calling for lots of rain so I think I know what I am doing for part of the weekend.

    Threads like this are killing me...I have my Black Bsnatch frame, wheels and a few other misc parts, but don't have enough money for a fork and some drive train parts. It's still going to be a good couple of months. I'm jones'n bad to build. Somebody send me some patience.

    Thanks. It may have slipped off the bottom of the page already - oops, I see you found it.

    Cheers,

    Chris

    p.s. SS is less hard than you think. Maybe.
    Ride.

    I'm doing the same thing, ebay and finding the best deals possible.

    Anyone have leads on a decent inexpensive 80mm front fork?

    I bought a new Manitou Minute with Absolute + damper on ebay for $320. Very nice fork. Used Rebas seem to be going for about $300 on ebay too. The slightly heavier Recon is going for slightly less.

    Boogie - sadly just to work and back the last couple of days trying to get the fit adjusted....the days are still to short to go before/after work so the weekend it is....Yes its a 100mm Reba. I have read mixed reviews but I figured if I didn't know the difference.....
