    Bike Build Shopping List

    Ok guys I'm seriously considering building up my SS HT from scratch. Could someone please do me a huge favor and post a list of all the parts I am gonna need. Like a shopping list that I can check off as I buy. Starting with the frame. I know all the basic stuff I need but just to ensure I have everything this would make the process a lot easier. Thanks

    ... and if we just ...

    i found out that i needed a chain tensioner (picked up a Surly 1x1, works great) at the end of buying everything. You may need to, so keep it in mind

    comon! a 6" travel fork on a hardtail isnt really that bad at all. it sags a hell of a lot, and it doent really raise the front up THAT much. ( i <3 my sherman )

    Well I guess I could share. .... Actually No way. Like I said I wasn't asking for your opinions on what specific parts I should use. Just a basic overview of every component I would need so I didn't miss anything.
