    no, the brakes were bsically off of reviews and backed up by Drew at CC and the the demo from CC was very decent but not was I was looking for (exactly). That being said, I put together what I thought made sense w/o losing durability. Thanks for the reply!

    Congrats! Awesome weight! It has very similar build as my friends. It's nice to know that his will be around that weight as well. The frame will arrive next week and we plan to have build party on the weekend as we will be putting together two MLs. Will post pics once they are complete.
