    Can Diggle build up!! (in progress)

    I finally received my tax refund and just ordered parts for my M diggle frame!! Now that I think of it, maybe I should have posted on here before getting everything but I was a little too excited. Here's what I am waiting for in the mail or already have on hand.

    Med. Can Diggle w/ roco WC
    marzocchi 66rc3
    sunline V1 OS 29.5" handlebar
    azonic outlaws w/ schwalbe tires (going ghetto tubeless)
    08 shimano saint crankset - doing 1x9
    e13 LG1 white
    SRAM x9 short cage derialleur w/ x9 shifter
    avid codes w/ 203mm rotors
    SRAM PG-990 11-34t cassette
    SRAM PC-991 chain
    odi oury lock ons
    wellgo mg-1 pedals
    fizik aliante saddle
    fsa big fat pig headset
    deity stem

    I also just got a new ultimate bike repair stand so I am ready to rock once I get the parts. I've had the frame sitting in my office just begging to get built up for the past 5 months. Now that the weather is perfect the wait is killing me! Anyone have advice, criticism, or whatever on the build?

    Arnt deity stems super heavy? Picked one up in a shop once and was really surprised. Their bars are super light though. I went with mg-1 pedals based on peoples raving about the weight but they are a bit soft. Not as comfy as my MX pedals. The rest is ruffly what I would have chosen and the frame has just popped onto my short list for this year, so I am stoked to see the finished build pics and ride report.

    The deity stem is pretty heavy...but I got it for dirt cheap. I'm not too big on weight right now and my guess is that it will come out to 40-42lbs. I'll work on getting it lighter after I see how it performs.

    Anyways, I just checked my order and it's not going to come in until the first week of April. I'm going on vacation until then, so no big deal. Hopefully it will be all built up in time for the Sea Otter.

    Anyone have any recommendations/suggestions on what spring rate I should get? I weigh 170lbs. I was thinking either 450# or 500#.

    What did you decide on the coil spring ? Thoughts ? New riding reports ? I am sure you love it.

    OK guys quick update... I ended up just having my friend gather all the parts and help me put it together. After months of waiting I finally put in some rides. It is pretty sweet so far! I'm still getting used to riding it. I'm coming from riding an XC bike so it's a huge difference. It is definitely a lot more fun than XC.... Here are some pics. Once I get more riding in, I'll get some action shots!

    Yeah. I just slapped it on real quick for the pics. I usually have it positioned facing up and to the back. I realized that when I posted the pics.
