CS-M04 27.5+ full suspension
« on: August 05, 2016, 10:49:29 AM »
Hi, I am new to this forum, but have searched it many times. I have bought a new Scott Spark 29er and I really love it. My previous bike was a Giant Anthem 29er. The Front fork needed service and my rear suspension beyond repair. I decided to order a carbon frame in China and to use all usable parts of the Giant to rebuild a new 29er, which will be used by my wife and friends.
As I was researching the Chinese options, I came across the CS-M04 from Carbonspeed. After some negotiations with Peter, I decided to build this bike from scratch and ordered one. In this topic I will inform you about the progress and would like to get your advice and comments. Till now I have only ordered the frame and the wheels.

My intension is to use the following components;
Front: RockShox Yari RC
Rear: Rockshox Monarch RT3
Shifter: SRAM GX Trigger Black
Rear derailleur:   SRAM GX Black (1x11)
Cassette: SRAM XG 1150 10-42T
Chain: SRAM PCX1
Crankset: SRAM GX-1000 GXP 1 x 11
Bottombracket:   SRAM GPX PressFit 92
Brakes: Juintech (taiwanese, sold by edge sports UK)
The brakes are available in the same red colour as used by Peter. I think it is a nice touch.
other components not yet decided.

VERY GOOD!

I've been waiting for a long time to see someone build the CS-M04 :) I'll follow this topic.
For your reference I bought the Juintech calipers (for a road disk brake). Not tested yet. It was a lot more simple and cheaper then using road hydro brake (they use a flatmount that is not compatible with my frame). But I can't understand what can drive you to use it on a full-sus MTB... :o
Can you explain?

Juintech also sells hydro brakes, which I consider. http://www.edgesportsuk.com/store/juin-tech/mtb/juin-tech-db1-hydraulic-disc-brake-set-red-f-r-160mm.html
Price and color are main motivations. I try to build this bike under € 3,500 including carbon rims.

Brakes are not the place I would be saving money.  Shimano brakes are all I trust on my bikes.

Very nice! I saw those pictures on his FB post and it got me thinking about some wheels for my wife's Tallboy for the winter months.

Nice!

I get multiple questions, if you don't mind
1) Is there an internal routing for a Reverb Stealth dropper post?
2) How do you design the painting? Is it your design or has Peter provided some options?
3) What is the real weight of this frame?
4) What do you plan for the Yari? 120mm or more?

EDIT: one more question, does the frame come with the metal plate to protect against chain suck? I see it on CS website, not on your pictures. I like this plate, nice looking and it's good to protect the frame!

Thanks!

It is strange this frame is only available for US/Canada.

Possibly due to some overseas copyrights or agreements with companies like Olympia Cycles not to sell in the EU/UK regions.
