    Building a Rig... Suggestions?

    Spent a lot of time last year on a friends X-cal, really liked it, so I bought a Rig frame last week.

    I plan to build this thing over the next month or so, I really only have the frame, set of brakes, and a crankset.

    Looking for suggestions on what works well on these things for reasonable money. Fork (g2, I assume), wheels, stem/seatpost...etc.

    Any other caveats I should know about?

    I'll start with what i'm thinking, and you guys can tell me if something is not recomended.

    For reference, I'm coming off an entry level 26(er?) - MB 700HT, and ride all XC trails.

    Fork - 100mm Reba
    Drive train 1x10
    Wheels - no idea
    Brakes - BB5/BB7
    Stem/Bars - no idea
