I've got a red theme on my Black Sov going too. Hope to buy the fork next month then will have to decide on a nw wheelset or fr.wheel or just a new hub for my current cheaper wheelset (still holding up from a year of riding reasonably hard).. Have a RaceFace Respond post & red Hope QR clamp already.
When it's finally together, it'll have some cheap parts from my Speesh but as long as I'm riding, cheap is ok until later!
Finally was able to get mine dirty yesterday on a pristine day at the Wiss. Overall, I was very impressed. Flies downhill faster than I expected and climbs just as well. Very flickable. Only on really techy stuff did I notice the lack of rear suspension. Definitely needs wider bars though. Something between 28" and 29" should do the trick. Anyone interested in a new Easton Monkeylite XC with only 1 ride on the cheap send me a PM.
