Trying to figure out if you are trying to save money or spend money here. You could save a bit with SLX cranks, cheaper brakes, XT rear derailleur, non-carbon seatpost. Or...poontank said:I'm really excited to build up my 575 and join the tribe. I'm building this bike for AM riding. Below is the planned build. I'd appreciate any advice or suggestions. Thanks in advance.
Frame 07/09 Yeti 575 Carbon w/Fox DHX 5.0 Air
Never owned a dhx but most people here prefer the rp23
Fork Fox Float F140 RLC or RS Revelation Race
I think the fox is plusher overall but if you hate brake dive motion control is the way to go.
Crankset Shimano XT
Wheels Stealth/Flows/DT Swiss Comps
How heavy are you? I think Arches would be fine unless you plan on going big on this bike
Brakes Magura Marta's
Rotors Magura Would I be okay with Marta's if I run a 180mm rotor in front?
Handle Bars Answer Protaper Carbon
I guess you've seen Jenson's price on these
Stem FSA 115 XC
Headset Sunline V1 AM
Holy mother of god. If you have used one of these with sucess then by all means but man it gave me nothing but fits.
Shifters Shimano XT
Seatpost I'm thinking about something carbon
Saddle Something WTB
Front Deraileur Shimano XT
Rear Deraileur Shimano XTR
Cassette Shimano XT
Tires Kenda Excavators 2.35
Go the other way; King headset, thomson stem, gravity dropper post.
