    Its done!!

    I built this as I had funds available (taught a ton of cpr classes) and did not really leave room for upgrade. This is exactly what I wanted here are the specs:
    Jabber frame Salsa fork
    Thompson seat post and stem ODI grips
    Soma Clarence bar
    Saddle needs no introduction
    Avid BB7 brakes and levers ( chose mechanical for simplicity sake)
    Xt Cranks and HBC cogs 32/18 (thanks Crazy8 for the awesome cranks!)
    Industry nine wheel set with Stans Crow tires front and rear.

    Only thing I'd change is the saddle. B17's just look out of place on a MTB, IMO. I love them on my road SS, though.

    How do you like the Soma Clarence bar? (I've been looking into one.)

    Looks good, nice work.
    B17 ain't bad when chopped and channeled.

    I've wondered if you'd gotten the Jabber together yet. You've built it with good components and should have many trouble free rides. 1SPD another member just finished his Jabber build last night and taking it on a shakedown ride today and expect him to post his impressions on the Jabber steel. I hope you do the same after a few rides.

    No jabber fork? The Odis is super swank... looking, at least.

    I'm not a fan of brooks on a mtb either, but that is mainly because the metal bits beat the **** out of your thighs on bumpy downhills and brooks are hard to get behind.

    But you ride in a different area, so whatevs. Nice bike.

    Sweet bike. Give us a ride report after you get some miles in
