Show off your Liteville!
I bought a Liteville 301 a while ago and would be keen to see how others have their's built up. A 601 might be on the cards in the future too.

Fork: Rock Shox Revelation WC 150mm
Wheels: Shimano XTR Trail

Shifters: Shimano XTR
Front Derailleur: Shimano XTR e-type
Rear Derailleur: Shimano XTR Trail
Cassette: Shimano XT 11-36
Cranks: Shimano XTR Trail 26/38
Chain: Shimano XTR
Bottom Bracket: Shimano Saint
Pedals: Time ATAC XS
Tyres: Maxxis Ardent 2.25" UST front, Kenda SB8 2.1"UST rear
Stem: Easton Haven
Handlebars: Easton Haven alloy
Grips: Troy Lee Designs
Seat Post: Syntace P6
Seat: SDG TiFly
Headset: Syntace Superspin
Extras: Syntace chain guide, Syntace rear derailleur bash protector, Elite bottle cage.
Give me two or three weeks and I'll let you know how things pan out. I picked up a Liteville 301 frame a couple of weeks ago and the building process has just started.
At this stage the bike is likely to end up with:
Fox TALAS fork
XTR bottom bracket
Mavic Crossmax ST wheels
Stem and bars - undecided but quite possibly Syntace
Seatpost- Syntace P6 (the only one that will fit, I think)
Seat, grips and bottle cages - undecided
Once it's finished I'll stick a photo up
The 34.6 post is an interesting choice, especially considering the cable routing is there for a dropper post. I found a 34.6 to 31.6 shim but have decided against using it.

That's right, 34.9. I'm not sure why I was saying 34.6.

I've finished building up the Liteville 301 with:
Fox Talas 32
Enve bar and stem
Syntace carbon seat post
Mavic Crossmax SL Disc wheels
XTR Trail groupset
Continental Race King tyres
This bike is fitted with the 160mm linkage plates and replaced a 2011 Cannondale Jekyll. There isn't much difference between the weight of the two bikes (the Liteville is about 200 grams heavier), but there is a marked difference in the way the bikes handle.
I bought the Liteville frame on the spur of the moment and I think it was a good purchase; it is a bike that seems capable of anything.
Marzocchi 44 RC3 Titanium forks fitted.
Is anyone able to actually use a drink bottle on the bike? Using the smallest bottle I have with the cage fitted as low on the down tube as possible, the rocker link hits the bottle.
Nice looking bike!
Would you mind if I asked how tall you are? I'm toying with getting one while the euro is down, but am unsure between a small and a medium.
I'm 172cm tall, riding a small.
Cheesy pic, but bike is amazing!
Float 34's and XT.
Looks good. I'm not a fan of the rear brake routing though. I've tried both ways and there is a lot of rub along the seat tube with both. Plenty of clear tape seems to work though.
i like the looks of that. would love to demo one
