I recently picked up an F2000SL Optimo frame w/Ultra Headshock and would like to build a sweet ride without breaking the bank. Being inclined to stay mostly with the spec'd build of XT components, I'd love to hear what the MTBR community has experienced. My goal is a lightweight bike which takes in to account today's technology. Basic decisions - Mechanical or hydraulic brakes? (Avid is a preference - which model?) BB/Crank/drivetrain - (XT looks like a solid answer - chich model?) Wheels - (Mavic - I don't need DH/Jump for my style...) I'm a longtime Hardtail fan (even on the 2 hour+ rides) as I prefer the road bike similarties when the headshock is locked out. Any help and suggestions would be appreciated!
