Hey everyone,

I just picked up a new Matic frame and I'm excited to start building it up. I've been out of the bike world for a while and picking out parts is starting to make my head spin. Would some of you mind posting up some of your build info that might be similar to what I'm looking for? I'm familiar with all of the parts and their purposes, just not the specifications and choosing the part that works "best" with these bikes, etc.

I've already got a DUC32, an ISO disk front hub and a front derailleur...but I need everything else. I'll probably go with a mix of X9 and X0 components and a high-end set of brakes. I'll also be looking for a sturdy set of wheels, probably built from scratch since I've already got the front hub.

Thanks and I hope eveyone's having a great Christmas :thumbsup:

Ben

Make sure the front derailleur is a Shimano Road Flat Bar, either 9 or 10spd!

Speedball/Joplin is wicked, 30.9mm.

FSA Orbit headset is the Best, make sure it's "Campy" spec, 45 x 45 IIRC.

The rest of the parts are up to you, yer wallet, riding conditions & style.
