    new RFX build

    I will be finally done with my RFX tomorrow when the new front derailleur comes in. I was all stoked to get a ride in this weekend because the weather has been great the last 3 weeks in norcal. But wouldn't you know it a storm is rolling in and suppose to last through the weekend.

    Build stats?

    I picked up a 2008 left over and its sitting at Red Barn waiting to be built once I confirm the parts. As I have a 4" Salty, the build will be a bit more All Mountain / Down Hill ish. My thinking is a s follows:

    -36 Fox Talas
    -SLX cranks
    -Magura Louise BATs 203/160 brakes
    -DT 5.1 rims (King HD rear /Hope 20mm Front)
    -SRAM X-9 rear
    -XT front
    -CK bottom bracket
    -Thomson stem & seatpost

    What does your build look like, what's the intended purpose & how does it ride?

    Any suggestions?

    It is a rf crank, blackspire stinger, and goldtooth bash guard. I have lyric two step with a pushed dhx 5.0 rear shock with ti spring. This will be my all around ride so called "all mountain". I would like to get another wheelset, I have 823's with xt hubs right now. I want
    819's laced to kings, hopefully by summer I can find a deal on ebay.
