    I would also consider a shop that will build the bike for you or
    at least do some of the setup (chasing the BB and cutting the fork.)

    I obtained my KM L from www.excelsports.com in Boulder Colorado.

    Maybe I am wrong, but I tried to build it myself, but their price for
    a complete build always seemed less than buying the parts (and I had
    nothing to reuse).

    PS over on the 29" forum there is nothing but praise for the KM and
    I am enthralled by mine.

    Yes, bike shops get better deals on parts, so it will cost less to buy complete.

    I have a old Falcon Frame (yes english bike builder from yore) and keep
    trying to get it road worthy but it is hard to work the numbers and not
    say "just buy something on sale" But would be a nice winter project
    as some sort of cross-bike thing.
