    About to buy a tranny, final spec.

    So I was looking for a new lightweight big hitting ht.

    It was a toss up between a custom lynskey ti, or the ibis tranny.

    I've decided it's going to be a tranny, just the size has to be choosen.

    The spec I've decided on (yes i'm running it geared) is going to be the following:

    Large or xl frame in either black or white
    2011 Fox 32 831s in 120mm flavour
    Cane Creek wheels in orange
    2011 single ring xtr cranks
    2011 xtr trial brakes with the cooling fins
    10spd xtr cassette, chain mech and shifter.
    Chris king mango bb
    Thompson stem and seat post
    sdg bell air ti saddle
    raceface atlas ano orange handle bars
    2.25 ust schwabe nobbly nics

    should be about 23lbs i hope and built like a brick.

    Is there any other strong light parts i should be looking at

    They do white Trannys?

    Looks like you have a good choice of parts there. Look forward to pics.

    Fixed all that for you! Sounds like an awesome build! Sorry, I've been editing trade show literature for a week now.

    They are stiffer because they use the stronger chassie and i'm a heavy (fat) chap .

    As for the colour I thought (assumed) they did what. Anyway I have decided to go with black, i think, or green, so fickle.

    The only thing I'm unsure about is the wheels as they are pricey.

    As for the spelling, well you will just have to put up with it because I'm rubbish at english

    So a few changes have been made.

    The frame turned up at the bike shop today in a nice green colour.

    the wheels are now industry 9 wheels with stans arch rims.

    Just got to wait for the 2011 xtr stuff
