CS 877 SL T 800 hardtail 27.5 frame
« on: January 17, 2018, 08:06:14 PM »
Hi peoples,
I just ordered one of these frames from peter at carbon speed. Just wondering if anyone has built one of these frames and can give me your thoughts. Will use this thread as a build thread but don’t no how long before I will see the frame.

That looks like it's going to be a great build. Very similar build to the CS406 I'm building. Do you already have the fork? If not, Jenson has them for $299 right now.

Wheels- undecided either sram roam 60 or novatech hubs with flow ex rear and wtb kom front


That's a random choice of wheels. Are those the only options?

I've found that with some looking, you can get some OEM DT swiss wheels for relatively cheap. I got some for my daughters bike and she ran them for a year as 26" wheels. Now that she is a bit bigger, I'm re-lacing them to 27.5 rims and reusing everything else. Even the spokes will work as the stock pattern is 3 cross and now going with a 2 cross pattern. Still gonna have $350 into the wheels but they have 350 hubs, XM421 rims, and Competition spokes.

Is this just luck, or rather usual when rebuilding from 26 to 27.5" ?

A little of both. I let my inner geek out when I was looking for some wheels so I knew my options before buying the wheelset.

But for DT wheels, you have a couple of options. Since they have a low profile aluminum rim, you can sometimes find a 30ish mm deep 27.5 carbon rim with the same ERD. Otherwise, you need to change the lacing pattern as 2x calls for shorter spokes vs 3x. In this instance, 28h 350’s use the same length spokes whether its 545 ERD 3x or 564 ERD 2x.

There is also a very good chance that I’ve spent a little too much time using the DT spoke calculator.

Here are some 2012 DT EX1750's. The front is a 240s DBIS 20mm oversize (which can be converted to 15x100 or 9qr) and the rear is a standard 240s hub. Spokes are Aerolite and the rims have an ERD of 540. You would need an ERD of 558ish to make these work with a 2x build.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/DT-Swiss-EX1750-Enduro-Mountain-Bike-Wheel-Set-26-11s-Shimano-6-Bolt-Disc/352251311358?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649

These rims from Peter would have an ERD of 560 as the spec is measured from the nipple seat not the top of the nipple. With an ERD of 560, the only issue is the right rear spokes would be 2.2mm short. But for $200, you would have 240s hubs and 3/4 of your Aerolite spokes. Just get some CX-Rays from Peter at the time of ordering.

Disclaimer: this may or may not work for the OP, it's just how I figured out how to reuse older DT wheels just for the hubs and spokes. The set I'm having relaced cost me $153 and they were brand new. I figured that price was worth a set of 350 centerlock hubs and Competition spokes.

I did pick up the fork from Jenson to good of a deal to not buy. Will be good to see the difference a couple of years makes advancement wish. I have to older fox factory ctd 100 on my hardtail 29er.

The wheel choice is what I already have. This will be my first build done on my own. I have had bikes built for me in the past. Thought it was time to build one for myself. A lot of the parts I had in stock. It was going to be a 1  10 build with what I had but got a great deal on a new groupset. I may go a different way with wheels, I no chain reaction has some great deals on dt Swiss wheels at the moment.

Awesome. I was looking at the Fox fork too for my daughters build. I ended up with a new Sid at the same price. Keep us updated on the build.

Will get some photos up as soon as the frame arrives. Going to be a good little project for first build. If frame is good and holds up well, I’ll be doing a 29er dually latter in the year. I am keeping an eye on your frame build and can’t wait to see it all together.

Update-New wheels ordered. Found some mavic crossride sl’s for a bargain price so will go that way.
