888
SDG Bel Air
X9 shifter/X7 Derauler (sp?) I figure youll lose it sooner or later... (shifters tend to stay in one peice, other than broken glass)
Maxxis Minion
El Caminoes
Kona Jack sh1ts
Holzfeller Kit
Cane Creek XC (its 1.5 right?)

(Sunday comes with Seatpost/Headset/Rear Hub)

This will be with frame from my LBS (they said if this is cheaper, why not do it...) and components from Soul Cycles (so yes that means i will buy a Loki frame and build that up over time...) I will also see the prices by my LBS (im sponsored by them...) the only change might be a Boxxer team/wc...

Id have a Boxxer but they no longer have Rock Shoxs. And i dont really want a Slider/dhx combo... (let alone a slider/6 way )

Ideas? this is meant to be as high end as possible, while being as cheap as it can (yes i will be skimping on cassete/chain) so tell me what you think.

yeah but the Boxxers (I have heard) require more mientnence and the 888 you can thrash around and you shouldnt have any problems.

so if you have money (for repairs and to buy it) get a boxxer or a dorado... otherwise the 888 should be fine.

your a lost cause mate...

if after seeing Turner DHRiders brand new Sunday frame you still cant decide on a bike then i think, you need stand in the corner and recieve no dinner untill you can think straight...

i say Boxxer/Dorado/888RC on a Sunday frame with 829s, UST tyres and just bloody get a bike and stop posting about getting one allready...
