Below you'll find the first picture, many more will come.
Frame: Specialized Epic S-Works Small
Fork: RockShox Sid WC Brain
Wheelset: ZTR Crest / DT Swiss 240
Groupset: Sram XO (still have to decide to go with triggers or twisters)
Seatpost: Easton Havoc non setback
Saddle: Selle Italia SLR Carbon
Stem: to be determined
Handlebar: Syntace Duraflyte 60cm (or Easton EC70 if Syntace won't work)
Pedals: Shimano XTR
The Sram XO group has been ordered en will arrive Saturday or Monday, the XT brakes are already in.
Did you consider 27.5? If it had been more readily available when I bought my size small MTB, I could've been convinced. How about you?
I like that you've got a bit of drop from your saddle to the bar. If you're looking for more, consider the Syntace Flatforce stem. I had to go that route with my size sm 29er HT to just get my saddle even with my bar. Little legs (and hardly any seat post showing) are my cross to bear - ha!
Not going Shimano levers and brakes? Seems the MTB scene much prefers XT/XTR to XO/X9. I'm riding SRAM only because that's how my rig was spec'd by the factory, but wonder what I'm missing out on.
As for the Sram vs. Shimano, I prefer Sram, only their brakes sucks, therefor I use Shimano brakes.
In the meanwhile I completed the build, only a new rear shock is needed and will arrive the 15th of august.
Below some pics:
Yesterday I did a quick weight check. The bike with pedals, garmin mount, bottlecage and Geax pitstop Magnum (incl. tube holder) weight 11.1kg. W/o the pitstop it will be sub 11kg. The final picture will come in later, friday the 15th a replacement rear shock will be mounted.
