Just recently built this up. I'm a huge fan of steel and refuse to ride anything but if it has one gear. So far, I'm VERY impressed with the frame for the price. It is fairly heavy, but I'm no WW and it is a SS, it's not supposed to be svelte.

O8 Frame
White Brothers Magic 29 80MM fork
Ritchey bar, stem, and post
Paul hubs, DT spokes, AC front rim, and Velocity Blunt rear rim
Truvativ crank
Avid BB7 w/ Speed Levers
Fizik Aliante saddle
CB Eggbeater pedals
Conti Mountain King rubber

Nice ride! I love my Origin8 Scout29 too. It's a slightly heavy frame, but you can get it kinda of light. Going rigid would shed some serious grams. But not everyone's a masochistic MTBer... Don't blame you for wanting some squish.

rear disc

Do you have issues getting the rear wheel out without having to unbolt the rear disc caliper?
