    new 456 summer season build........need parts help

    Hi All...just ordered my first 456 SS and I am getting the parts together to build. Can some one please tell me the headset size and the seat collar size? Any other advice would also be appreciated. Right now I am going with an SLX double 9speed drive train, BB7 brakes and a domain RC fork with some Outlaw wheels. Any other tips?

    thanks much!!

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    FWIW, I run my Summer Season 1x9 with a 34 up front, works great...
    only advice is, trust the steel, I was initially worried going to a hardtail from my fully and went too big on the tires, (for cushiness) was a huge pain in the ass for someone who enjoys climbing as much as I do...

    Just get ready to bomb some hills, even with 'only' a 150mm fork for me, she's reaaaaal slack.
