Hey everyone! Great forum here! Not even entirely sure how I found it... probably linked through MTBR or something. I just recently got back into mountain biking. Hadn't ridden any trails in a long long time. This will be my first season back in the saddle.

I bought a Diamondback Overdrive Comp 27.5 HT as a first MTB. I really like it and can't wait to get going. I'm one of those people who dive head first into hobbies (which I love but my wallet isn't always happy with it). I also like to have every available resource for research and general browsing. Certainly enjoy seeing the talented builds here. In the future I could 100% see myself building a Carbon FS 27.5+ MTB. Building it is a huge part of the fun (right?)!!

Thanks again everyone. Hopefully I can become a useful resource here!

Hi, I'm Calvin from Austria, where bigger chinese packages get taxed with 20% -.-
I just recently got my 29er HT frame in size 17" and a carbon rigid fork. Love the setup, since im mostly a roadie, a suspension always felt strange and kind of unnecessary for XC. The wheels(srly heavy at almost 2100g) and tires(Continental Race Kings 2.2in or Schwalbe Thunder Burt 2.25) are from my old entry level hardtail, but mostly the stuff i got on my rig is chinese. Handlebar, stem, seatpost, seatpost clamp, seat, crank, oval chainring, Ti bolts, QR skewers. Brakes are cheap Br-m355 hydro brakes from Shimano with the cheapest 180 and 160 rotors.
Plan to make a relatively budget weightweenie budget XC built. Either singlespeed or a 11spd e13 TRS+ race cassette(9-46t) with XTR mech and shifter, either Deore or XTR brakes(depends how much i really wanna spend), KCNC razor rotors(85g for 160mm), Velosa carbon wheels(1350g), Schwalbe Furious Fred(360g per tire), tubeless of course.
