    2007 Salsa Moto Rapido Build - Need Help!

    OK, so after reading all these awesome reviews for the moto rapido I picked up a used 2007 Moto Rapido 20" frame (on a pretty good deal) the other day and planning a ground up build for a sweet xc/all mountain ride. I need suggestions on a few components though, I'm thinking just x.9 on most of the drivetrain and I'm leaning towards a reba fork since I already know what to expect out of a reba... and I already have pedals... just looking for suggestions on the following (I am somewhat budget minded):

    Fork (80mm travel):
    Wheelset:
    Hubs:
    Cassette:
    Brakes:
    Cranks:

    and do I need a medium cage or long cage on this bike?

    Here is a couple links of other moto build's for comparison/reference, (not sure if i'm liking the choice on forks for these...):

    oh, and i notice most reba's now only allow the disc brake option so ... disc vs. conventional brakes doesn't really bother me... I guess, although I've been riding disc for the last 6 years now so... it seems like everything is going towards disc nowadays... but having the option would be nice
