A few pics of the parts and build proces. The feline doing her inpsections of the bike parts, not hissing, puking or marking, so I think they all pass the test. She sniffed the 36 the most, who knows might have cancer.

in progress. It still surprises me how slack the Endo looks.

Pretty nice, I also would love to try 2x10... Nice build!
I realy like 2x10, 36t "middle" ring, and 22t small is perfect for CO.

Thank you, Larry from Mounain High Cyclery enabed me on most of the build, a did a spectacular job on the wheels.

Nice setup eric...like the floating rotors. :thumbsup:
This might sound crazy, but you should check the oil level in the fork before riding it.
Many reviews about them being shipped with low/no oil in them...I know personally about it also...mine had about 3 drops in it.
15cc in left side and needs to checked every month until until you get a usage guideline! ;)

Yes, seems to be an issue with a few fork companies out there. I've had this for for a year or two, I ran it on my DT few times for more xc oriented rides, but I much prefer the Totem on the DT. I think the 36 will be a great match for this bike and my intended use.

I'm impressed with how everything is going together so far. Larry chased the BB threads for me, and installed the BB (I didn't know the Hive cranks came with an installation tool :thumbsup: ) Larry pecied together everything that needed to be assembled, which made everything plug and play basically, I think the hardest part is going to be getting the ders setup, and that is how I like a build to go :)
