So I'm going to start off by saying that I'm probably going to need some help figuring this out. Secondly I'd like to thank Peter at / for his help getting me all the things I need.

Important Build Notes
  • Rear shock bushing sizes- 20.2mm wide with 8mm bolt and 50mm wide with 8mm bolt.
    I'd recommend getting offset bushings even if you're not wanting to change the geometry. The offset, if both bushings are aimed in the same direction away from the seat tube, will help with any clearance issues with the shock. The control dial on the Manitou McLeod comes in contact with the frame just slightly with normal center drilled bushings. (
  • The cable routing is pretty bad as far as having the shift cable housing running under the bottom bracket shell. Just keep that in mind. It won't bother me too much, but I know some people won't like it.
  • If you are getting custom paint and going with a matte finish, have them put a coat or two of matte clear coat on it. The matte paint is fragile.
  • The DH940C rims were super easy to mount tubeless. One layer of Orange Seal tape and 1 16g CO2 got it started enough for me to hook up my pump and pop it the rest of the way on. After I got the tire on the rim, I deflated the tire, removed valve core and injected sealant. No leaks at all. I'll post tire clearance photos when the rear tire comes in.
  • Rear rotor size is 180mm, not 160mm as listed.

I'll keep editing this post and updating it with anything new that comes up.
