    even your blue mat matches the bike. this build is either going to be hideously revolting, or it will blow my mind.

    Matt - In the first post of the thread you have a picture of some bolts, some colored and some titanium. Where did you get them? Looking for similar bit of kit for my bike

    saturnine, I'm hoping for a little bit of both.

    csermonet, I used to get all my Ti and Alloy bolts from Racebolts.com but lately it's been eBay and Torontocycles.com

    I've had these for a while but I didn't post a pic so here they are, my brake rotors. (to be attached by Ti bolts of course)

    title is misleading; this is now a 2013 build. possibly 2014

    Sorry but I can only build as fast as parts come in and YES it's killing me. It shouldn't because I'm not going DHing until June and then July but I still want it finished.

    MY King hubs were ordered on September 13th. 2012 and delivered on March 2nd. 2013 and now I'm only waiting on my FOX 40 fork and then it will be done.

    Purdy! It's gonna suck when you lay it down for the first time, but then it'll be fun immediately after that! Finish that sucker already!

    OK so this is Not a Joke. While building my wheels on Wednesday my wheel builder had a (Cardiac Event) not a heart attack but close. He was rushed by ambulance to the hospital and in the ICU until Friday. We are all wishing him a speedy recovery. He's still in the hospital today but should be home tomorrow.

    All the color matching was just too much for his fragile heart to take? Did you request a twist lacing pattern alternating orange and blue spokes with alternate color nipples?

    Nope just black spokes and orange nipples on orange King hubs and color matched blue Flows. Like I said before the color combo was not my choice I just went with it. I can't wait to get it to Whistler.

    If anyone wants to ride together I'll be in AngelFire NM in June and Whistler in July.

    Well my wheel builder will be in the Hospital for at least another 3 weeks so I'm taking my wheels to someone else to get built. He's got a good reputation in town so we will see.

    Our thoughts and Prayers go out to Sean and his family. Get better soon buddy!

I'm doing my wheels myself with some help from an actual wheel builder and the rear is done and mounted and the front will be done tomorrow and the pics will be up tomorrow night. First ride will be this Sunday. I'm super stoked!!!

    Your Wish is my command!!! Friday April 5th. 2013 and she's done!!! Let the ribbing begin. And No those are not my DH tires. Those are my (cruising the XC trails of Houston Texas on my DH bike tires.)

    I want to thank Marin bikes, Fox shocks, Greenfields, Easton and of course John for the wheel build.
