ebay frame fr-201 threaded bb.
magura durin 80mm fork
ashima pcb, uncut hoses, can save a few more g when i cut them. ai2 rotors, carbon TI rear caliper mount.
lightning crank, 32t ring, twin bbg guards drilled to save more weight,
ti xpedo pedals
racing ralph tubulars, reynolds carbon tubular
sram red tuned rear der, xx shifter, tuned shifter clamp, recon alu cassette (perhaps not the most practical), kmc x10sl gold
wcs stem, tuned cheap ebay carbon bars (105g after tuning) kcnc grips, kcnc post, regale seat alloy rails.
I estimate I have 2,000 - 2,500 usd invested, but I am a bargin hunter.
future plans include; xx grip shifter, lighter wheels and more tuning of existing parts.
Any thoughts and comments both positive and negative are welcome, and yes I ride trails on this as shown, so far only 4 hours and everything works very well.
How are you dinding the ebay frame? Bars sound good as well, got a link?
Do like the Magura forks, my son has Durin Marathon's on his FS!

The cassette I know will not last long, i used a sram red 12-28 cassette and will move back to that.
The pcb's are all over ebay for a song, I have a spare set in my cellar.
The frame is great, I had an older ebay carbon frame (4 years ago) and this one has come a long way, a lot stiffer, handles better and lighter.
the fork is ok, i am not a fork nerd i have only had one other shock fork, and this is way better than that was (older reba) i like that i can pump it up and it does not have too many settings to fiddle with, some people like tons of adjustment, but I like to play with tire pressure more than shock adjustment, just a personal thing.
the bars, they are Hylix bars search on ebay for them, they were 125 grams, after cutting the reinforced ends off and sanding off the clear i was down to 105g not bad for a bar that was $50 usd.
Thanks again for the questions and input!
The bars are great. just as stiff as I would need, they have not broken so I would say they are strong enough.
I am pretty sure I have a set but not yet fitted them (think I have set of Hylix too)
