So looking at some different build kits and came across this one from MHC. I dont think its specific to the endo but looks pretty damn nice. I would like to build one to about 30lbs if possible. What do you guys think of this build? What would you change or swap out? Would it be better/cheaper to build piece by piece or a kit of some sort?

Little bit more about myself: Im riding a 2004 Yeti 575 atm. been a great bike but as I look to buy a new bike I cant leave the Endo out of the equation, hence, the short list. Im not planning on riding anything bigger than what I normally do. Most of my riding is Las Vegas Blue Diamond area with a few rides at Bootleg thrown in for good measure. A few side trips a year might include Gooseberry, Sedona, Brianhead, you get the picture. I weigh about 180 so I dont really need the bike built up any heavier than 30lbs.

Another option to consider if you want to keep the weight down a bit more would be the 150mm RockShox Revelation. Depends on your preferences though (ie: if you're willing to add a bit more weight to get 160mm). I've ridden the Endorphin at Blue Diamond and Bootleg, great bike for that area.
