    Nice build

    And yes, it sounds very clyde-worthy. Be sure to post some pics and a ride report once you've had it out. Enjoy!

    Well the bike shop said all the parts should be here this weekend!
    Then its just a case of them getting it built, he said next weekend at the LATEST!

    I changed to the mavic 819 tubeless rims on kenda tyres!

    My friend just got a new scott hard-tail for 800....wow bike technology has come along way since the 7 years when i had my last bike. Its a seriously good bike for the money.... its made me so excited to get my hands on my bike knowing that mine should be alot better than that!

    The only thing I would be nervous about is the Pike...good forks but you will notice a lot of flex. I used to ride Marz z-1 drop offs and they flexed like a wet noodle...went to a set of 03 Juniors with hscv valving and its like night and day. The new Fox 36 van would be a good SC fork from what I hear...the 07 Rock Shox look like they could be very good as well.

    Other than that the bike sounds killer...I have the mavic xm 321 rims and LOVE them...good combination of wieght and strength. Get us some pictures man...hehe...
