    Corsair Maelstrom build: looking for feedback

    Hey folks,
    I'm not sure if this is the right place for this, since Corsair isn't really a custom frame shop, but there's no Corsair forum yet....so this is where it goes.

    I'm going to order a Corsair Maelstrom build in the next couple of weeks and I'd love some feedback. Here's what I'm thinking so far:

    Frame: Corsair Maelstrom, medium, adjustable headset, dirt color
    Shock: Marzocchi Rocco WC
    Fork: '09 Marzocchi 66 RC3
    Brakes: Avid Code (203mm front and rear)
    Brake levers: Twenty6 (gold)
    FD: Shimano XT, e-type
    RD: SRAM X-9
    Shifters: SRAM X-9
    Chainguide: Blackspire Stinger
    Chain: SRAM PC-991 cross-step
    Cassette: SRAM PG-980
    Crank/BB: FSA Gravity Light, mega-exo
    Handlebar: Sunline V1
    Grips: ODI Rogue
    Stem: Twenty6 (gold)
    Seatpost: Thomson Elite
    Saddle: WTB Pure V Race
    Hubs: Hadley (gold)
    Rims: Mavic 823
    Spokes: DT Champion 2.0
    Pedals: Twenty6 CroMo (gold)
    Tires: Maxxis Minion DHf 3C 2.5 (both front and rear)

    Bike will be used for heavy trailriding and freeride. It's a pretty burly build, as-is, so looking for some potential weight savings without sacrificing too much burl. Thanks for your feedback.

    Yeah........

    I'm being told that the frames will be available in late December. Hopefully that date doesn't get pushed.....especially given that the date has been pushed several times already.

    I hope you're wrong, but my gut tells me you're probably right. Either way, March would be alright. Riding season in Montana is winding down already any way, and it won't pick up until March-ish.

    Yep. I got an update from Doug (president at Corsair) a couple of days ago and he said Feb 1. The good news for me is that riding season is on hold here in MT, so the usual Corsair 'delays' aren't a huge deal to me unless they can't deliver until April or May.
