    Here`s my build kit...

    Here it is,with plenty of feedback from you guys(thanx!)

    2004 Demo 9 frame
    waiting for 2006 Marzocchi 888RC
    2006 SRAM X.0 rear derailleur(short cage)
    2006 SRAM X.0 Trigger Shifter
    2006 SRAM X.0 Cassette(11-32)
    Truvativ Holzfeller Crankset with 38t ring
    Truvativ Holzfeller handlebars
    Truvativ Holzfeller stem(60mm)
    Truvativ Holzfeller pedals
    Truvativ Team seatpost(double bolt,aluminum)
    WTB Power V saddle
    E.Thirteen SRS chainguide(mountain X bashguard)
    Sun MTX rims(36 hole)
    DT Swiss spokes(14 guage)
    Sun ABBAH front hub(20mm axle)
    Maxxis Minion DH 2.7" tires
    Hayes MAG full hydraulic disc brakes with 8" rotors
    Lizard Skins North Shore lock on grips

    So far my LBS got everything for me,including the 2006 SRAM stuff (don`t ask me how,but they fanagled it somehow).Now that everything`s sitting in my room,all I have to do is wait for my 2006 888RC to come out.Screw it,I can wait.My stinky should hold up fine till later this year.But once the forks come in,you can bet I`ll put myself in the hospital on this beast.

    That sounds like its gonna be a pretty kickass build man.

    is making a comeback.

    Turns out that five years of not mountain biking, really makes one strive to get back to it.

    I like all that SRAM. Looks good. I'm not a huge truvative fan but as long as the BB bearings are large and outboard its all good.

    Do you know waht the main diff. is gonna be with the 06 and 05 888? I haven't heard anything about it. Not internet crap either, like have you talked w/ Marz. about any changes.

    See if you can get the 2005 link. It is lighter, and would essentially make your frame a 2005 Dem 9 (other than the paint...)

    Flat Crowns come stock and they will have hi/lo compression adjustments,but an update on my build:I decided to go with the 2005 888 RC because for one,I came into some money recently and I can get the bike sooner,and two:my LBS will give it to me brand new out the box for $800 !Can`t beat that.As for 2006 Marz,I was expecting to wait till October or later.Screw it,2005`s are fine for a sooner build and $800.Can`t beat that.
