    So close yet so far.... I want my Spider!

    Shop told me 5 working days to get the frame in (Medium Spider Comp 29 Raw / Gold), but 5 working days later, still no frame

    Should have it built by this time next week with the following parts and will post pics:

    Fox 34 TALAS 29 RLC Kashima 140 / 110mm.
    Easton Haven Magnesium Wheels 15QR / 142x12
    Front rubber - Schwalbe Hans Dampf 2.35"
    Rear rubber - Conti Mountain King 2.2"
    XT Crankset 2x10 26/38 black
    XT M785 Brakes
    XT M785 shifters
    XT M786 FD
    XT M786 Shadow plus RD med cage
    XT M771 Cassette 11-34
    KMC X10 chain
    XTR SPD pedals
    MRP 2x chain guide / bash
    Easton Haven carbon bars 711mm
    Easton Haven Magnesium 70mm stem
    ODI Rogue lock on grips
    Rock Shox Reverb stealth dropper
    Selle Italia SLR Gel Flow saddle

    Erm, I think that's it. Hopefully will look great with all the Kashima / Magnesium gold bits.

    Now all I need is a frame to bolt it all onto......

    Nice build! I just ordered a black-gold frame as well, but am going with a Pike 140. Should have the frame in a couple of weeks but the fork will not be available till November. Then I have a month-long overseas trip so I may not see it built up till early next year. It will be mild torture.

    It arrived last Tuesday and I built it up during the week. First ride was Saturday, and it really did feel like I'd owned it for a long time.

    It did everything my Pivot does, but smoother. I still need to fiddle with pressure settings, but first impressions are very, very positive.
