First off, gotta say thanks to Big Tim for helping my get this project off the ground:thumbsup: Lately, I have been wanting a bike that was something I could sit on comfortably all day and still hit all of the fun stuff on our trail rides. My bikes are either straight-up XC race bikes, or small/chuckable/strong bikes. I was wanting for something in between. My plan is make this rig a dual ring, with DRS, 6x6 aggressive AM bike. The race team that I am on is sponsored by Sram, Maxxis, Crank bros., Magura, and a few others, but those are the bike componetry companies.
The anticipated build is as follows;
19" Fat Possum w/08 DHX air 5.0
160mm air fork
Crank Brothers 50/50XX Flat pedals
60mm Truvativ Husselfelt Stem
Handlebars, either Sunline V1 carbon low rise or Easton EA70 flat bar
Crank Brothers Sage Headset
Crank Brothers Joplin Lever seat post
Easton Havoc AM Wheels
Tires either combo of Kenda Excavator 2.1 rear/Blue Groove 2.35 front, or Maxxis Ardent
2.25 rear/ADvantage 2.4 front
Elixer R's 185 front/160rear
Bontrager Race X-Lite Crankset 36/24
X9 r/deral mid cage
X9 shifters
Shimano Deore front deral
Sram 980 11-34 cassette

The frame is at the Powder Coating facility now. The only parts I have now are the cranks and chain rings. I am freaking stoked!
