keepin' it rural
i bought this build...
i bought a moment from them last august, this exact same build, except they let me upgrade the fork to a Pike 454 and the wheels to accommodate the maxle and switch out the seat.
the price was $3490 US but i had a $100 coupon for test riding one with their road team and an additional $100 off because a coworker of mine ordered one at the same time, so i only paid $3290 shipped. they were really cool about everything. they sent pics of the bike as they were building it too, i highly recommend their shop...oh yeah and dont forget the free t-shirt!
WOW...you realize that this build would be over 6000.00 CAD in Canada...my 2004 Id with an XT/Vanilla build was tagged at 5999.00 CAD

Yeah, that's a pretty good price. Beyond Bikes offers a $700 credit on the Moment frames, so let's say you got a fork and maybe some wheels, you still be talking another grand or so to fully build it getting you in the $3200 range (conservatively). Ellsworth might still offer you $700 on trade for your Id, if you're selling or moving that frame. This is how I got mine from Mondo at the Path. Used parts from the old frame to complete the new one.
swap the fork
Itís a pretty solid build, except for the fork. Greenfish has the 06 Marz All Mountain 1 on sale and itíll be a better match for the Moment. I just bought an Intense 5.5 frame with the Marz fork from Greenfish and they gave me a great deal on the package, much cheaper price than buying the frame and fork individually. Call them up and see what they can do for you.
swap out that fork. maybe RS Pike or even Marz 66 (although 66 may be too high and mess with head angle???)

Thanks again...next steps is to see who ships to Canada, and the duty/tax implications
