    New question here. first build

    I'm getting a Fetish cycles obsession frame but I'm still trying figure out what all I want to put on it. I want to stick with flat black,red and crome color scheme with shadow conspiracy V2 chain, BB7 brakes,zu zu pedals, aggro stem, diabolus bar, and maybe a phil wood bb if I could figure out which one would fit. Other than that I dont know you guys got any ideas?

    That's how I have mine set up. I'm trying to sell the frame though - it's great and all but I'm going back to steel and the sucker has a very funky sweet spot that makes it tough to manual and wheelie. Other than that, the only thing I wanted to add was a chainguide.

    really? do you think playing with the rise of the bars and angle might help

    I've tried, but I'm leaning towards the problem bieng weight placement over the back of the bike...then again, I could just suck.

    I was just checking out price point and I could get an X.9 build kit and the argyle 302 fork. what do you think it seems to keep to my color scheme but I'm a little confuzed with the measurements ebay has for the frame so I'm having trouble filling out the kit options.....if any one could help me with choosing the derailers, seat post and stem measurements
