    My New Epiphany

    I've just finished ordering all the shiny new bits required for my Epiphany build and I thought I would post it up and see what you guys think.

    I live in the UK and will be riding mostly on non-man made trails, up north in the mud and rain; the Lake district; Northumberland and the odd trip up to Scotland's Seven Stanes. Will also be using it for some endurance events this year (100km Merida Mountain Marathons) and hopefully a couple of 24/24's. Any (useful) comments welcome. [Parts have been chosen with me in mind (155lbs (70kg) and easy on bikes). ]

    Frame Size & Color:19" Anodised Black
    Fork: Pace RC41
    Shock: Fox RP23
    Brakes: Avid Juicy Ultimates (160mm F&R)
    Cranks: Tune Bigfoot with Middleburn Slickshift Hardcoat rings (Black)
    Bottom Bracket: Tune
    Shifters: XTR
    Front Derailleur: XTR
    Rear Derailleur: XTR
    Pedals: Time ATAC XS Carbon
    Stem: Thomson Elite (Black)
    Handlebar: Easton Monkrylite Lo-Riser Bar CNT
    Seatpost: Easton EC90
    Saddle: Undecided Yet
    Cassette: XTR
    Chain: SRAM PC991
    Headset: Chris King (Black)
    Grips: Undecided
    Front Rim: Mavic 717
    Front Spokes: DT Swiss Revolution
    Front Hub: Tune King
    Rear Rim: Mavic 717
    Rear Hub: Tune Kong
    Rear Spokes: Dt Swiss Revolution
    Cables: Clarkes Pre-lubed

    Whole thing should come in at about 24lbs; which I feel is fairly respectable for a 5.25" travel bike.......

    What does everyone else think??

    I guess you forgot to add the tires...
    When trails gets tougher, Just stand up and deliver.
