Here's my new bike. Very VERY pleased with it (thanks, KeepItSteel):

Frame: F1000SL Large. Optimo Tubing. Team SoBe colour.
Forks: Headshok Ultra DLR (upgraded with Magura Internals or so I've been told).
Stem: Headshok
Bars: Easton EA70

Brakes: Magura Marta, Goodridge hoses.
Rear Mech: XTR Rapid Rise
Front Mech: LX
Crankset: Deore(?)
Cassette: SRAM
Shifters: LX

Saddle: Charge Spoon
Seatpost: Cannondale

Wheels: Mavic 3.1 24-spoke tubeless, Cannondale Omega Hubs
Tyres: Bontrager Tubeless

Let me know what you think. More pics to follow later :)

I might want to swap it for a medium if anyone has one (or a similar 'Dale):

Its a lot brighter in the flesh. Crappy phone pictures don't do the colour any justice! Its in absolutely mint condition too. Its as if it was bought back in 2003/2004 and hasn't ever been ridden. It feels a bit big for me at the moment but I'll give it a while to see if I get used to it. If not I'll be doing a frame transplant for a smaller one!

Looking to swap the frame for a smaller Team SoBe or swap frame + forks for a smaller one in a different colour. Not looking to sell it at the moment because it's plenty comfortable enough to ride around on :)
