    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

    just went riding today.....and actually hit one of the jumps that i had set a personal goal of building UP too....so, yeah...COMPLETELY stoked.

    hit it 3 times...not one wreck...
    1st time was the first time i've EVER hit a drop to tranny...it's like...6ft or so. and i was scared as HELL. a guy there (he's actually from norway..exachange student) that rides MX a lot...and was on a haro v4 (xc bike...) and hit it in front of me...so, i was like..screw it and did it. it was such a great feeling!
    2nd time...i pulled up on the launch...and ended up manualing the landing...haha, i bet it looked cool...but i thought i totally screwed it and was about to wreck...but, i made it..barely.
    3rd time was just butter. i had my confidence and i knew how to do it...and i did.. loved it!

    here's a ****TY video of my 3rd jump.....sorry for the quality..it was with a camera phone





    oh, and i installed my danger boy levers a min ago....it's a COMPLETE ***** to remove the drift pins out of the stock levers... i didn't wanna hit too hard cause i was afriad i'd break it...but i got mad and beat the hell out of it..and it worked. they feel great...gotta ride with them tommorrow to get a complete review.

    here's the levers installed: (i'll get better pics to replace these tommorrow in the day light)





    guess it's time to clean up some:

    honestly....i couldn't tell you about the geometry and me enjoying it or not...cause, frankly, i have no clue.

    to me...the bike rides great. I don't really like the seat being so damned low...and am constantly raising it really high to get leg extension when on the trail or greenway...but, it is nice to have it able to go low for jumps/drops.

    i've just always had XC type bikes....and walmart bikes as a kid....so, i'm still getting used to the "dj/4x" geometry right now.


    but...so far so good
