    Building a Cannondale Moto 1 ...help!

    Hi guys, new kid on the block here, and I mean REALLY NEW as I have never done what I am about to do and I appreciate all you help and patience.
    I just bought a complete frame for a Cannondale Moto 1 Carbon (back suspencion included but thats it).
    1. I am thinking of puting Mavik XM 819 tubeless wheels (26 inch)...good idea? I undertsand this bike goes best with rigid tyres. Suggestions?

    2. Thinking of putting the SHIMANO XTR M970 CRANKSET crank 170mm...size ok?

    3. I will be putting the original Fox 36 Talas RC2 suspencion..no questions on that (unless better suggestions welcome!)

    4. I have heard the original brakes on this model are not the best for the model....what brake system would you suggest?

    5. Handlebars?

    6. Gears?

    7. Joplin seat?

    all these questions!!!!

    Thanks alot guys, help is very appreciated.

    kind regards

    Eric

    Remember to push with your arms.

    ok, so basically you are saying go with Shimano XTR wherever you can..fair enough...but brakes would you recomend? and the Mavik 26 inch XM 819 tubeless wheels seem ok to you?
    By pushing with your arms...you think the uphill will be a real pain?
    thx
