    My Morewood build

    figured i'd start a build thread of my own...just so it's easy to keep myself going with this build

    plans:
    * Frame: Morewood Ndiza HT
    * Fork: Zoke DJ2
    * Brakes:Hayes MAGs
    * Cranks:Saint
    * Rear Derailleur: Sram
    * Pedals: Primo
    * Stem: Holzfeller
    * Handlebar: hussfelt
    * Seatpost:Thompson
    * Saddle: WTB Jaxon V
    * Bottom Bracket: saint
    * Cassette:?
    * Headset:FSA the PIG DH Pro
    * Grips:ruffian
    * Tires: k-rad
    * Wheelset: haven't decided yet



    so far i have the frame, fork, stem, and bars....and am working my way to getting the other parts together and HOPEFULLY get this finished over the winter months and ready for spring

    thanks guys
    i've got to decide on what all parts i'm going to be running.....

    but, as soon as i unload a couple of my extra car parts (honda..b-series stuff) then i'm going ahead and getting the crank/bb....and putting some money towards the outlaws

    looks like it'll be a fun ride. I want to see these white outlaws on a built bike...

    saint cranks are so frickin' cheap right now...

    new part: Saint Crank...picked up BRAND NEW for $129.99 from my awesome LBS!


    and...possibly NOT getting the white outlaws....none of the distriubtors have them...and if they don't come in soon..looks like i'm just going to pick up the black ones....and if/when they blow i'll just toss on some sun ringle MTX camo rims

    brakes, seat post, grips, and new saddle should be here in a week..... just getting aroudn to making a FINAL decision on what wheelset to run...i can't make up my mind:

    white or black outlaws
    white, black, gold, Halo SAS
    or black deetraxs
    or building my own custom wheelset....

    In order:

    1)Custom- usually the best option, you can get every part you want, built the way you want. Only thing is, this option is abit more expensive.

    2)Outlaws- i've heard so any people who love em, and they dont blow the bank

    3) not sure on the last ones. SAS are super burly, stronger than your other options (unless you custom built a even more burly set), but they are heavy. if you dont care about weight (which i think most people do) then maybe these are your wheels.

    4) Deetracks- not sayin these are bad, i just dont know anything about them, so im not gunna give an opinion. but i think there was recently a thread on the dh/fr forum that was sayin these suck...

    the only problem with custom is...well...i don't know a damn thing about what parts are good or what to buy..... imma ask my LBS tommorrow when i go buy/order everything i have left....maybe they';ll have soemthing in stock so i can even ride tommorrow

    btw...tommorrow imma order:
    X7 or X9 shifter(s)
    0.7 or 0.9 derailuer
    E13 SRS possibly
    wheelset (gotta decide when i get there and talk to them)
    cassette
    chain
    and possibly a new fork

    this...pending the hopeful sell of my last civic hatch tonight

    i would suggest not buying the halo wheels, the rims are really soft and they flat spot really easy. I would go with something built up custom, or some Azonic outlaws
