    Nice bike -like the colour combinations!

    Am I looking right, you are using a regular front derailleur, not the E-type?

    KTL: Yes that is a top swing, 31.8. I should have used an E type, but the specs said traditional pull. No, didn't fit, this works good but has clearance issues in the small ring.

    PPP: yeah, I'm short, and I do use it for DS/DJ.

    Very nice build! If you just swapped out the saddle and post for an SDG I-Fly carbon and i-beam post youŽd have the prettiest prophet IŽve seen.

    Post some action pictures and have fun with it..!

    I went cheap on the saddle on purpose. I tend to mess up saddles when wrecking on gnarly rock lines. This one works fine and replaces for $40.

    I have a Truvativ shift guide, BB mounted. One problem with it is tire clearance when the frame flexes. I have to place the top of it on the suspension pivot to get clearance, so it rubs the bolt. Not a big deal, but it does mar the bike a bit. I'm not sure about e.13's or MRPs. They were out of stock when I built this and I lack patience. Chainrings are 22/32/Bash.
