- First MTB build…. help!!!!!
If your on a budget, check out he classifieds on here and on pinkbike, but be careful who and which method you use. If not on a budget, merlin for most of your needs, wheels, drivetrain etc. then your own choice of finishing kit.
For forks, x fusion are getting great reviews, and are a lot cheaper than their competitors.
Best of luck, building you first proper bike is a joy, bloody frustrating at times too!.Posted 4 years agospawnofyorkshireSubscriber
hey njee20 – if the OP isn’t interested in the shifters I could be – either 9spd or 10 spd is fine as i have one full build and one commuter bike to do
OP should have dibs though as this is his thread 🙂

OP – I’ve found shimano stuff easier to work with when learning, especially brakes.Posted 4 years ago
Merlin have some good deals on drivetrains and this could be a good shout for you
there’s a triple for the same priceleo72Subscriber
You’re welcome to check out my latest Cotic custom build, all parts were selected carefully. The flat pedals that the bike has on the pictures are Shimano Saint MX80, but the bike will also be used with SPD pedals – depending on riders choice (I prefer SPD all time!). This is our rental bike. 🙂 Here’s a link to full parts list: http://www.vitalmtb.com/community/Hillside-Cycling,26127/setup,24730

I’d get new deore brakes and gears, used cranks (any xc cranks really), used revelation or reba forks, used wheels (Hope, any decent rims), wide bars/stem/pedals/saddle from classifieds, a good used reverb post. Might be in the region of £800-ish for the bits? Everything’s possible on a tighter budget though.Posted 4 years ago
