A lighter way to stop the cable end from fraying is to dip in a little superglue and not the heavier option of a cable crimp.

small point, but all the grams do add up...

Don´t care about cable stops, he didn´t even use the front brake housing & caliper! :shock: But the rotor rests there... why?! For the look?! :lol: Just joking, man, hope you´ll finish the thing soon and post more pictures than...

Nice to see how others have build their TopFuel! I like your build - seems like a nice combination of some reasonable lightweightparts and some trustworthy parts. I chose another way to build mine but it's just a matter of taste 8)

this was a older pict of the build i got from a friend that he took, the reason for saint wasnt really a reason i got the whole set wtih levers for free, jsut to get into disc and i really was just getting into disc thus the no hose in front, but now i have juicy carbons and they kick ass, i hope to get you guys some picts soon, and the fork is going to go im debating over a rockshox reba world cup or a fox rlt100 any opinions? umm other than that i put the rest of the carbon goodies from fsa on (a pro deal thing i got going on), umm 06 xo shifters that rule, and the new cassette that is trick as hell, im proud of my silver bullet, i bought everything myself, built my own wheels, and built and maintained it all so yeah im proud being one of the yougest kids to be able to fully service any product out there, my specialties are forks and hubs, so yeah, thanks agian all, and keep riding
