    '11 M2 build up ideas????

    So I got my 11' M2 frame and WOW this thing is so much nicer than my '08 frame! Ano rulz!

    So I want to make this thing 30lbs and was checking out the build kits on colorado and drop zone bikes. I was wanting to just swap parts from my 08 but after seeing the new black frame I want to buy new parts for it and make it a 2x10 with a Fox 36 Float or Van. A few questions....

    1) DB M2 frame according to my scale about 8 lbs sound right?

    2) Go with a build kit or shop around separate for parts? Found this X0 2x10 build with wheels which is $$$$$ but looks nice. What would a kit like this be around 18 to 19lbs?

    3) If I do swap parts, buy wheels first then fork and then drivetrain?

    My plan is to also buy a Spec 29r EVO ht for xc but still want the DB built up nice to take anywhere in the country.

    And of course now the 12's are coming so now
    Peace from Hell...

    IMO I would get the XO 2x10 and Fox 36 Talas 160/120. You'll love the 120 when things get XC ish or climbing...My bike weighs 28.25 with XO and 1x10 with Fox Talas 36, mavic crossmax st. weighs 31.5 with Hammerschimidt and bigger 2.3 tires.. so you could build a 30 lbs mission easy. I think you'll love it!! Can't wait to see what you get on that frame, show us a pic of it
