    How To build an MTB from scratch / frame

    Recently started to build a couple of hardtails from scratch, a Scandium/ Alu Kona and a carbon Norco Revolver HT, both 27.5 bikes.
    While the process is the same for both they use quite different standards that can be confusing for someone new to this.
    I've learned and continue to learn a lot from people on this forum so here is my way to give back: it's a series of four vids describing how-to build a bike from scratch, or from the frame up.
    Hope it will help and encourage those new to mountain biking to try this very rewarding and entertaining project.
    Part 1 is here, let me know if you experts out there have anything to add:
