    New Rig (super pinner)

    Here's what I have planned for her. ( I could not contain myself any longer )

    07 Iron Horse 6point
    09 Magura Wotan
    Marzocchi Roco RC, 250lb Ti Spring (possible Roco WC Air later on)
    08 Shimano XT brakes
    Complete X9 Drivetrain
    991 chain
    12-26 road cassette
    Gamut P20
    E.13 34tooth guide ring
    Sun MTX's laced to Haro brand hubs
    Husselfelt cranks (will be changed to Holz oct's later on, or gravity lite's if I can find a 83mm ISIS bb)
    Thomson post and stem
    Hope bolt-on seat post collar
    Deity Dirty Thirty bar
    Sunline Half Waffle Lockon's
    FSA Orbit Z headset
    2.5 single ply Nevegal
    2.35 Intense 909 2ply (not the FRO)
    Time Z or Truvativ Holzfeller pedals (depending on the ride)

    Saying "Im juiced" is an understatement
    What do you guys think of the build? Any guesses on what she'll weigh?

    Now comes the wait of almost a month until the frame and fork come...
    No bike for a month?!

    Where do you ride that you can get away with the 12-26 cassette?

    Or rather, are you just that beast?

    34 up front 11-26 in the back.
    I've been riding single ring for the past 2 years. Only way to go on a AM bike.

    To answer your question: Anywhere where you ride.
    I made the climb up 3rd Divide a few weeks back with a 34 up front 11-23 rear cassette. It hurt, but completely doable.

    You would have much better luck finding a used Heckler for cheap. 6points are still rather expensive.

    using a road cassette and a single ring you might think about running a road deraileur, or at least the xtra short cage. You wont be needing to store too much chain with those gears...

    I have a short cage X9. No worries there.

    Hey MM!

    Sounds like a great build to me. Do you have a P20 and E13 34 ring yet? If not let me know as I'll probably get rid of mine (yeah, I'm a wimp going with a dual ring instead).

    Also you'll want that Enduro Externalizer I was telling you about. That will get the HTA down closer to 67 deg My build is very similar with a Lyrik solo air and an X-Fusion H3LT rear air shock and weighs 33.5 lbs. I am going with an Avalanche modified 5th coil-over tho so final weight will be closer to 35.

    Have FUN!

    Good to hear man! 35lbs is what Im shooting for!

    Shoot me a PM.
    I have a dual ring guide if your interested. (stupid light)

    Im gonna ride it with the Orbit Z first. The plan is to keep the BB as low as possible. Not to concerned with HT angle. I'll ride it the same either way.
