    2011 Anthem X 29 frame build up

    So I just placed an order for an Anthem X 29 frameset. I don't have much of a budget so I'm transferring everything from my GF 29 HT. I have questions about two things:

    Front Derailleur - what model do I need? I'll be swapping over my SRAM X7/X9 9spd components. Do I need need top pull, low clamp?

    Bottom Bracket - I'll be swapping over my Bontrager GXP crankset. Do I need a SRAM/TruAtiv BB86 press fit BB?

    Thanks!! Can't wait to get this and build it up!

    Here is a quick list of parts I'll be putting on it:

    SRAM X7/X9 9 spd drivetrain
    2008 Reba Fork (100mm)
    Bontrager GXP racelite crankset
    Hadley/Flow wheelset
    Ragley Carnegies Carbon bars
    Avid BB7 brakesets (185f/160r)
    Fizik Alliante XM saddle
    esi grips

    Later, I'll upgrade my brakes and get a dropper post

    It isn't BB86, I don't know why they say that on the website, it is a BB92. Same thing but with MTB spacing, the BB86 is for road bikes.

    You are right, I ordered a TruAtiv bb92 bottom bracket, hope to have it built up by this weekend


    Just finished the build up on saturday and got in a short ride on sunday. This bike is incredible, it climbs better than my hardtail and descends better than my old Turner.

    Weighs 27lbs, which is pretty impressive given that it's built up with burly parts. The wheels are flow hoops, hadley (bulletproof) rear, sram front.
