Ended coasting a little more than I thought.Like 1500 or something.But I love it!It's a little slack.But you can do 30 on a skinny trail.Very stable.Real fun over rollers.Stops on a dime.Not to heavy to pedal up.And I'm gettin' up there.

I got the frame a week ago (Big thanks to Bikeroom!) and was planning to start building it up next week. I ended up getting a new singlespeed a couple of days ago, so the 456 build is going to have to wait a while. I'll probably pick up this kit to start.

Here is the proposed build. Where available, all parts will be silver or white. Specs subject to change due to poverty.

* Stem: Thomson Elite X4 or Hope
* Handlebar: RaceFace Deus Low Riser, 31.8
* Seatpost: Thomson Elite, 27.2 x 410
* Saddle: WTB Pure V SLT
* Bottom Bracket: RaceFace X-Type
* Cassette: SRAM PG-990
* Headset: Hope or RaceFace or King

Try swapping out the DHX-A air can with one from an RP3. About $38 from Fox. Maybe MK can repost his how to thread over here.
