Thanks for this look at your build, looks great. Although a road bike guy I also have an interest in getting a 29er but don't really know anything about MTB.

What do you think of the stock build? http://www.on-one.co.uk/i/q/FBOOLRCAB/on_one_lurcher_29er_x9_carbon_mountain_bike

For a beginner like me? $1675 (export price) seems OK.

Also it looks like your photo account is over the limit.

Rims still not arrived...got a call from the builder saying the hubs are ready to go, hopefully have them finished next week provided the rims do eventually turn up!

cables ran for the shifters and remote, could do with shortening the front brake cable...

weight saving tip: take the cable guide out that is in the steerer of the fork. Then rotate the black part on the crown of the fork until there is enough clearance to run the housing out in front of the fork. It can be a stiff bugger to move on some forks. I've done this with my 2 bikes with CTD. Also allows for shorter housing/cable.
