Thank you, but i forgot to mention that i wanted to make a single speed.
Take away shifters and derailleurs, and get the rear wheel with single speed hub or regular hub with single speed spacer kit. And a cog.

Building a full bike with $350 will be almost impossible unless you have a lot of extra parts salvaged from last bike and get a used frame for cheap.
On the other hand, you can get Bullseye for $400. Mountain Bikes - 29er SingleSpeed - Dawes Deadeye
Gravit 29 is $350 Save up to 60% off new Mountain Bikes - MTB - Gravity 29 SS Single Speed 29er Mountain Bikes, but personally, I would go for Bullseye solely based on the fact that its frame is steel and Gravity is aluminum.
I have no experience with any bikes from bikesdirect though, but a lot of people here have bought from them, and they seem satisfied.
Another list - should be similar to one above:
bar end caps
single-speed chainring bolts (yes, they're specific and different from geared chainring bolts)
single speed spacers (if you buy regular wheels)
chain tensioning system (if no horizontal droupouts)
Wheelset (rims, spokes, nipples, hubs, rim tape, quick release axle-F, lock on axle-R)
Brakes and calipers
Brake cables and housing
zip ties (for cable routing)
Tools necessary to do the job right:
Hex wrench set
bottom bracket tool
cassette lockring tool (??)
crown race setter
headset clamping tool
hack saw (for shortening fork steerer tube)
wire cutter (for brake a cables)
tire levers for putting tires on
i want one of the turbo spokes...thats cool, way better than playing cards!!!
