BMC TeamElite TE02 build up
In this thread I want to share the build up of my new TE02 Frame. The plan so far:
I want to reuse a lot of my old MTB parts for now since the budget is tight (student). The build will, for first, be a 1X9 setup. So now I have:
TE02 Frame, brand new and unused, white 2010 colour scheme.
9sp Shimano XT RD (maybe I'll replace it if I can't put a new cage on it since the old one is rusty at a few places)
Richey Bar & Stem
X-Tasy Seat Post, but I either need an adapter to fit the frame or a new 31.4mm Seat post. Not sure yet what I'll do.
Chain (bought a new one for my old MTB, but never used it)
Deore 9sp Shifters
Everything else I need since my old MTB had hydraulic rim brakes and a few components where simply shot.
Now I wonder if I can use a 120mm Recon Fork I can get cheap or if only a 100mm will fit? I also wonder if 200mm disc brakes would be over kill for someone who never owned disk brakes before? So, what size would you recommend?
Thank you a lot! And stay tuned for some pictures when I will start building it :thumbsup:
