Here is the frame - as stated above - it's black and fairly light!

Took a trip to the post office today to pick up a box of red SRAM-candy! Here pictured with the Manitou fork.

Great thread.  Thanks!  Where can I purchase this same FM-0001?  Does Peter sell it?  The original link doesnt work.

Thanks!

Peter doesn’t sell this frame but he did have a similar 15” 26er frame. My daughters frame is still going strong with out any issues. Here is a current link for the 14” frame.

And so it begins... for starters I hade to make a BB press-tool. 3/4" MDF, M12 threaded rod, some washers and nuts. Mating faces were greased before installation. BB went in witout issues.

The steerer tube was cut to a preliminary length, way too long. Will be adjusted later. I have short Wake stem on order, same as shown earlier by OP in this thread.

Now I have also installed the bars and brakes, hoses are not cut to proper length. Rear mech is in place

The bike will get red as accent colour - I have a list of red things on order: Pedals, seat post clamp, shift cable housing, headset spacers and some other small bits and pieces!

Looking very nice! For the price, those short NX cranksets are tough to beat. Finally some decent short cranks available.

Thanks. The Level brakes were a slight disappointment. The reservoir / handle / piston unit is huge. I am sure they will do the job, but they look clumsy, unfortunately. Had I known, I would have gone with something from Shimano at the same price, I run XT/SLX on my own bikes and Deore is far slimmer than theese Level brakes.
