    Yeah it will do the '03-'12 guides. Still waiting on King hubs and FOX 40 fork. I guess I shouldn't be impatient, I don't get to ride it until May or June.;)

    Skip the Paul tensioner. I ran one (briefly) on my SS DH rig last summer. It kept the chain on just fine, but did nothing to quell chain slap. Noisy.

    Ended up with a Rohloff tensioner after trying a few others.

    For next summer my DH frame is being designed around full-time SS.

    I posted a pic of the problem solvers tensioner I'm going to be using instead of the pauls. Kevin Aiello the Pro DHer on KHS is using one so if it's good enough for him it's good enough for me.

    Interested to see this when it's done. Those colors should look pretty good together.

    Man I am bummed! 13 weeks since my Chris King order and still NO Hubs. I shouldn't be that upset it's still January but Dam, 13 weeks for some Mango DH Kings seems like a bit much. I will post more pics as soon as I have more parts I swear. The wait is worse for me. :mad:

    Well since I have some time to kill I'm going to be getting some raw Twenty6 Predator pedal bodies from Tyler at Twenty6 and having them powder coated to match my Frame and then I'm sending them back to have them assembled with Mango traction pins and lazer etched. Gonna be Sick!!!

    Why powdercoat the pedals instead of anodize? Seems like it won't match as well and will chip off.

    Dudes I'm trying! 13 weeks since order day and still NO HUBS!!!!!! I'm going crazy. Trust me it's WAY worse for me. I still can't ride it until the snow melts so I guess I shouldn't really care but I just want it done already. :cryin:

    Like I said at the beginning of this thread, the orange cranks came with the frame so I decided to just play that theme out. Tyler at Twenty6 components was nice enough to suggest that I get blank pedals and get them coated to match and have him assemble them after so I thought I might as well, they will be One Of a Kind for sure.

    Hey man, if it's what you want, do it! I think it sounds sick. Just wish I had the funds to trick my bike out like that!!!! Just envious here =) Can't wait, the suspense builds!

    Wait, you built that 14-pound Niner in the WW forum? Man, talk about opposite ends of the spectrum. Can't wait til you finish this bike, I bet it'll be awesome.

    Yep that's me 13.9lb. Niner Guy. It's Crazy, even over 2 years later when I'm out riding somewhere, anywhere people stop me and say, Hey, hey, hey, is that the bike from mtbr? I say yes and then they ask, No the 13lb. Niner? It's so cool when people say, Man it's crazy that you actually ride that thing and hard. I would never build something tyhat I couldn't beat the crap out of. This is my 5th. full DH build but wait till you see my Sub 17lb. Niner Jet RDO build. I'm shooting fo the worlds lightest full squish, geared 29er.

    Man I've got way too many Irons in the fire. I also have a 400whp Miata that's always in need of More Boost!:thumbsup:

    Did you say Miata? Post that one too when you're done! I was really into Miatas (always on Miata.net) until I got into bicycles, so my car has been somewhat neglected. Still have it, just don't drive it enough... maybe because it has 1/3 the horsepower yours does... lol!

    Those hubs are going to be a while. I ordered CK hubs last year, they promised a 3 week turnaround. Four weeks later the shop I ordered them fom called to check the status...and after CK stringing me on for two months, I cancell the order and ordered a set of Dee Max from Price Point. I confirmed they had them in stock, and had them 3 days later, delivered on a Saturday afternoon no less. Felt bad for taking away a sale from the LBS, but had a felling Mavic would do the same as CK.

    At least you have time on your side. Just take any delivery date from Cris King with a grain of salt.

    The fact that it was mentioned you ride a 29er, makes me question if you wife isn't a man! Post some nude pics to prove she's ALL women! (Just kidding of coarse).

    Well it's STILL NOT my Chris King hubs but I got tires. I talked to King today and they're waiting to build a color matched set for me. They have both the hubs I want but the anodizing is slightly different so I'll keep waiting. Here are my tires, 2.4" Trail Kings.

    Nice, 310whp '02 Bugeye wagon owner here, STi engine swapped (still need tranny and Brembo's!). Street tires auto-x setup currently but thinking about going the opposite way and going fully rally.

    And OP, 400whp on that little thing is scary fast. Very nice car.
