Looks good, the only thing I would ditch are the Gore cables, go for some
Jagwire or Sram

Haha too bad, already got them! I only have brakes and wheels left. I am riding in cold Fargo, ND also. I've heard Elixirs hold up well in cold. What do you guys think?

I prefer BB7s, with them no probs at all at any condition, that's why they are so popular on
many Fat Bikes, and they work very good

I have a set on my Gary Fisher Rig, and they do work very well. If the Elixir R's do not work on the Pug, I will take the BB7's from the Rig and put them on the Pug. I do not have a bike with hydro's yet and I would love to try them! I work at a bike shop, so I have to do some product familiarization! :)

I love the Gore housing on my trail bikes, but seams like a waste on a bike with full length housing.
I got a badass deal on the Gore shift kit at work, so that's why I opted for that. Also, this is my first bike with gears! Haha I have a 29er singlespeed, a BMX and a fixed, so this is my first chance to experience something other than that one sweet speed.
