    Crank,

    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 groupset
    XTR brakes
    XTR bottom bracket
    XTR pedals
    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 have a shim going from 34.9 to 31.6 though.

    Crank

    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
    XTR brakes
    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.

    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.

    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've added a 34.9 Lev to the Liteville. The DT shock is starting to show some wear on the shaft. Does anyone know if a CCDB Air (7.5 x 2) will fit the Mk9 301? It's the size of the shock body I'm concerned about.

    As far as I know the ccdb does not fit the 301, but a monarch or monarch plus would and it's an excellent alternative to the fox.
    What I also know is, that it's difficult to find a shock that will work well in the 301, due to the unique linkage.
    Hope that helps.

    maybe give EightyOneSpices a ring and they can advise - tho probably will advise their custom tuned Fox
    EightyOneSpices Components Distribution

    On another note, how does a head mounted cable seat dropper work with this frame (you know, the ones where the cable moves)
    I have just picked up a 301 2nd hand and want to retain my Specialized command post
    Any tips?

    I've emailed them a while ago but got no response. The guys from Liteville/Syntace said the RS Monarch Plus would fit and work with the M/M tune. Everything I found (and translated) suggested the CCDB Air wouldn't fit. I'll get the Monarch on there eventually.

    I don't see why the routing on the frame would cause any issues with the Command Post. Unless the rocker arms snag the cable as they move through the suspension action.
