    I think it would be cheaper to buy a complete bike somewhere else. Other than that if you are sold on the BMC then I would take a look at Jenson USA and their build kits. You could buy the frame for $700 and add their xt bulld kit for $800. You would still need a fork. I would go to Ebay and look for a slightly used Fox Fork. You would probably be looking at $1900 or so but you wouldnt be looking at a heavy bike that has a fork that you might not like. Jenson is very difficult to beat on price and customer service.

    Sounds like a pretty good price for those specs. I would go for it. The trailfox is a great bike.
