After being told another month here, another month there I'm getting anxious about the arrival of the ASR-Carbon. From what I can tell, I'm not the only one. So to pass the time I thought everyone could post details of their planned build. So here goes.

Frame Color: Black
Suspension: Fox F100 (hard to beat, but I'm interested in other opinions)
Headset: CK
BB: XTR
Crankset: XTR
Fr Der: XTR
Rear Der: XTR
Shifters: XTR
Cassette: XTR (maybe XT, I don't like replacing $200+ parts on a regular basis)
Chain: XTR
Hubs: SLR or XTR (still undecided, opionions?)
Rims: see above
F Tire: Ignitor
R Tire: Crossmark
Brakes: XTR
Handlebar: Easton Monkeylite
Stem: Thomson X4
Grips: Yeti Odi lock on
Saddle: Yeti Ti

If you wanted a lighter build you could go with the following

Pace RC39 forks
Goldtec Pro Comp hubs on Stans ZTR Olympic rims and run the Stans NoTubes system
Hope Mono Mini Pro brakes with floating rotors
Ritchey WCS stem
Ritchey WCS grips
Selle SLR 135 saddle

The Goldtec wheels are lighter than the Mavics and XTR's even with normal DB spokes. If you ran light spokes they would be much lighter.

Frame Colour: Turquoise
Suspension: Fox F100RLC
Headset: Chris King
BB: XTR
Crankset: XTR (26/40)
Fr Der: Ultegra
Rear Der: XTR (short cage rapid rise)
Shifters: XTR Hydraulic Dual Control
Cassette: DuraAce 12-27
Chain: XTR
Hubs: XTR
Rims: XTR
F Tire: Schwalbe Furious Fred's (295grams)
R Tire: Same
Brakes: XTR Disks
Handlebar: Easton Monkeylite
Stem: Thomson X4
Grips: Ritchey WCS Foam
Saddle: Yeti Ti
Skewers: Woodman Ti

With the Schwalbe's and the 2x9 setup I think it will be around 21.5-22lbs. Though those tires have a silly low amount of grip so most of the time I will be running either Small Block 8's or Crossmarks.

Our Yeti team rider is getting all his parts ready for the arrival of the frame and he also has gone down the Ultegra cassette and duo chainring route. He's also got some alloy rotors from PoshBikes.com and other various carbon bits. Plus I think he's using RS SID's for his forks. He is getting a small frame as he's not much over 5ft 4ins and he weighs about 9 stone when wet lol. I've got a bet on as he reckons he can get it under 21.5lb but I say 22 is more achieveable.

If he's running a 2x9 with a road cassete, he may be able to get away with running a road derailleur, too. Any idea on what size chainrings he's using?

So far looking like;

Frame: Turquoise, Medium
Fork: Rock Shox Reba Team, Black
Headset: Chris King, Black
BB: XTR 970
Crankset: XTR 970
Fr Der: XTR 970
Rear Der: X.0 long cage
Shifters: X.0 twisters
Cassette: XT 11-32
Chain: SRAM PC99HP
Hubs: Rear = Chris King, Front = American Classic or maybe 'nother Chris King
Rims: Stans ZTR Olympic
Spokes: Sapim CX-Ray
F Tire: Schwalbe Racing Ralph 2.25, w/ Stans
R Tire: Schwalbe Racing Ralph 2.25, w/ Stans
Brakes: Margura Marta SL 160 F & R
Handlebar: Ritchey WCS carbon flat bar
Stem: Ritchey WCS Carbon Matrix 100mm, 6 degree
Grips: Ergon (GX2 carbon if available, or whatever else I can get at that point)
Saddle: WTB Silverado
Pedals: Crank Brothers Eggbeater 4Ti
Seatpost: Thomson Masterpiece or Ritchey WCS Carbon (if they release a zero setback for 2008)
Cable Housing: "Nino's" fully sealed Alligator shifter housing/liner

With the slacker steering angle I think I'm going to ditch the Hopey steering damper that I've been running with my old ASR. Was wondering if I'm ready to go crazy with something like a Rohloff in the rear (the whole bike will be so light it's not like I'm going to have to worry about weight...) but I don't think I'm ready to take that plunge quite yet.
