    Salsa Moto Rapido Build - Need Help!

    Hey,

    I picked up a used 2007 Salsa Moto Rapido 20" frame the other day and planning a ground up build for a sweet xc/all mountain ride. I need suggestions on a few components though, I'm thinking just x.9 on most of the drivetrain and I already have pedals... just looking for suggestions on the following (I am somewhat budget minded):

    Fork (need 80mm travel):
    Wheelset:
    Hubs:
    Cassette:
    Brakes:
    Cranks:

    oh and would I need a medium cage or long cage on this bike?

    Here is a link to another forum on another moto rapido build for reference:

    Ask the guys in the Salsa forum. They are a die hard bunch over there.

    Also, you should PM biker bob on this forum and see what he can do fo you. He was a Titus dealer and got hosed when Titus went out of biz / consumer direct. You'd really be helping out the little guy and his prices are awesome. Let him know that mnigro sent you, he will take care of you.
