Trance X Budget Build (2011 frame) - speccing parts
Getting some parts together for my build and was wondering if you could impart your wisdom on me to help me get the right parts to make sure it all fits.
I am trying to do it all on a budget, so I appreciate there are some parts you might not have chosen if it were your bike, but I am using a selection of available parts and stuff I can pick up cheaply.
I have the following:
frame, as per the title
mavic crossride wheels from my hardtail (QR pair due to budget) - please can someone confirm the frame accepts a normal QR rear wheel axle?
fork - Coil dual position Sektor with QR drop outs and 1 1/8 steerer, again due to budget
FSA headset spacer to fit 1 1/8 fork
720mm low rise bars
XT 9 speed rear mech
SRAM 9 speed cassette
Parts I need are:
front mech - please can anyone confirm which type (top, bottom swing etc) I need to go for? There seem to be loads of different options. Diameter?
brakes - probably going for Deore, seem good for the money
seat post - please may someone confirm diameter and any recommendations?
seat - probably being dull and going for a fizik gobi as it works on my other bike and fits my weird shaped bum
shifters - chain reaction cycles have xt 9 speed going cheapish, deore even cheaper
Bottom bracket - is a BB91 the right model?
Any help much appreciated, might have time over christmas to build it up.
