    Flite Frame Build-up (pics to come shortly)

    I received my frame and some parts from Pricepoint yesterday and took a half-day vacation to build this baby up. Here's my kit:

    Sette Flite AM Frame @ 17"
    Rockshox Monarch 3.1 Shock
    Rockshox Revelation Team Dual Air Fork (140mm) w/ Pushlok
    Cane Creek ZS-3 Headset
    Sette Headlock
    Specialized Stem and Handlebars (Take-offs from my SJ Hardtail)
    Deore LX shifters
    Avid Juicy 7 Brakes/Levers
    Oury Lock-On Grips with Pimp Caps
    Easton Havoc Seatpost
    Sette QR post clamp
    Specialized Avatar BG Seat Cr-Mo rails
    Deore XT Fron Derailleur
    Shimano Hone Hollowtech II Crankset 22-32
    e*thirteen Bashguard
    Shimano SPD Pedals
    SRAM PC-951 Chain
    Old Rubber Tube Chainstay Protector
    Deore XT Rear Derailleur
    Shimano 11-34 Casette
    Mavic Crossride Disc Wheelset
    Panaracer Fire XC Pro 2.1 Tires

    The build took me about two and a half hours since I had some sub-assemblies (bar/stem/cockpit, fork caliper, pedal/crank) already complete.

    I took her out for a ride and everything felt great. Only complaint is that I could hardly reach the rebound adjustment knob, so I'm thinking about inverting the shock (can-up position). I'll probably keep the travel at 5" so this should be fine.

    Yea. The shock was can-down from Pricepoint. I changed my mind and went to 6" travel. I'm not so sure you can flip the shock with the factory bushings since the offsets are different.
