My turn to start the build with this WCB-M-109 frame

I've almost received all parts - the 3 last are on the way to home
if I have no problem with the parcel shipping and if I have time... the build should be done by next week-end  ;D
I will Post some pics when it's done

hi
the build is complete, bike is tested and approuved  ;D

Globally the frame quality is very good - cable routing entrance are great and give a better level than those I have on my other Chiner bike (it's similar to wellknown brands)

here it is:

I have not checked its weight yet but  (after having verified most of the parts) it should weight 10kg (only  :D)

A few comments about the build:

  • I started by having a (small) problem with the head tube. The parts used for screws (cable entrance ) are a little too long - they touched the fork pivot so I had to file them a little

  • Brakes hose and cable for speed lever were easy to install
  • Restriction about Crank Set - I installed a SRAM Eagle but I currently use it with 11 speed (I'll move to 12 speed later)
    The crank set was mounted with a 32 teeth ring... and fortunately for me because there is no so much clearance between the frame and the ring. I fear that using a 34 teeth ring is not possible (not a problem for today... but my wish to move to 12 speed + a 34 teeth ring.... is not sure to become real one day ....)

  • no problem regarding the tire clearance... I use a 2.1"tire and I still have some space>>> I think 27.5 + tire could even fit


I did a 66km ride with it and I'm really happy about the build - Lightweight, really comfortable, and a good position (I still need to adjust the handlebar to have it perfect  ;D )
it took me a lot of time to get all parts (5 months) but it was necessary to get good deals all of them.... so patience pays :-)

Now I need to train myself to enjoy more and more rides with it  ;)

Thank you Carbon_Dude  ;)

I have done some more rides since my last post, and specially this week-end in a rocky area with a lot off hills... and I really appreciated my Full Suspension bike   ;D (easy for climbs and very stable for downhill tracks)
I found that I need to a little more pressure in the fork and shox for this kind of ride - but the behavior is already almost perfect
The shox RS Monarch RT3 is a good choice - I hesitated to buy a Fox one... but RS is really less expensive and does a good job
more I ride more I'm happy of the frame/components choices ( will I take my hartail again ???:D)

Hola yo tengo este mismo marco pero en 29" y es cierto que el plato de 34T no entra, yo lo tengo montado y tuve  que quitar la chapa met├ílica para montarlo, mi intencion es montar 36T pero me parece que no voy a poder.

un saludo

thank you for the feedback
I think I'll do the same when I'll take a 34 ring
