    Ti Timberjack build

    So, I was lucky enough to get a Ti Timberjack. This will be my first build and i'm quite confused. I have the Aluminum Timberjack and was going to cannibalize it. But, the headset is different. The only reasonably priced headset is a CaneCreek 40, but most places I can find are out of it right now.

    I'm not too impressed with the Praxis crankset, so I was thinking of replace that. I'm looking for middle of the road until I get my bank account back up. Or, should I wait to 'build' it and just piece it together with really nice parts? That, it must be said, could take some time and i'm not sure I have the patience or will power to wait that long.

    Anyone have any suggestions, recommendations and/or advice?

    Thanks in advance,
    Gonzo

    If it were me I'd wait until I had the parts in hand for a complete build in order to avoid risking losing riding time during the season, unless you live somewhere where the season is year round.

    I'd probably go big with the new Race Face Next whatever crank and the super duper nice Cane Creek headset that has a 100 year warranty.

    Dude if you bought a titanium frame, go all out with the build. Wait until you can buy top of the line parts for everything.

    Any pics of the frame?!
