Looks like I am going to be a Haro girl :)
Pulled the trigger today getting my build started. 14" Haro v2 frame with upgraded dropouts and a Shimano Deore XT Wheelset. Got both for a trade-in and $120. Also have some Deore brakes on the way, $15 a set. So far, $200 into the build. Hope to have it done close to the new year :) I plan to ride the **** out of everything before upgrading to full suspension and hydraulic disc :D Wheelset and frame both support the switch the hydraulic too, so I can just switch out the frame when I am ready to upgrade.
So stoked, can't wait to get it all together!
