    Mag fork? Interesting. What??? No CK or Hope Headset? Ah well, that's a nice build. The only thing I don't like is the cranks. Get Truvativ the f outta here!!!

    Lucky Basturd your friend is!!!

    unfortunately he had a slight budget... but he seems to be spending more $ on the right places of the bike. CK wasn't really an option to him, but perhaps down the road if he has too much money to spend. he is coming off of a 1998 Joshua XO so this bike will be a little bit of a upgrade.

    I guess I got the idea that he's richer than he really is, that he bought an Evo. He spent his money wisely. The only things I would change is a Cane Creek S3 headset, an X.7 RD, and a Deore LX FD and that would hopefully leave me with enough to buy some LX cranks.

    Happy Trails to you and your friend!

    Make sure he gets the 118mm spindle for the howitzer bb assembly. The 113mm spindle isn't long enough and he wont be able to turn the cranks freely.
    The howitzer/holzfeller combo works, but it kicks the chainline out a bit farther than I'd like. I may change to shimano xt in the future, I think I'd get a little better chainline out of it.

    pics

    after waiting for a couple weeks on his backordered cranks to show up, my friend was finally delivered his frame w/out cranks. he ended up with raceface evolve dh cranks because they were available that day here in town. here are a couple pics, bike should be finished after this weekend.

    the wotan looks really nice. very beefy and light, i think it is going to be a killer fork for the evo.

    almost done.

    he still needs handle bars, stem, post, and pedals. those parts pictured are just spare parts we had around. will post complete bike and build pictures soon.

    Nice time lapse pics

    Pics are nice, keep them coming. I have toyed with the idea of the Wotan for some time now, I would love to get a review of the fork, esp how it works on the EVO, once your bud gets a chance to ride it a little.
