hey guys just order a med parker from and tora fork from jenson. This is gonna be my first build im so pumped! if anyone has any ideas for deals or advice on best way to do this that would be awesome!
also gonna be my first bike with rear suspension, I heard this bike is a good transition from hardtail
Possibly consider buying a Bikes Direct bike and swap the parts over and whatever is left sell on ebay. I almost did that with my build that I am working on except I needed too many specific clyde friendly parts so I would have had to sell off more than I wanted to mess with. Otherwise, research, and look, look, and look some more for the best deals and be ready to spend more than you intended. My $1000 budget build is up to about $2500 now last time I checked.
