Right, i've been debating with myself for a while since getting hold of Carge's FSR Elite frame and decided i want to do my best for this bike :)
i'm going for a light cross country type set up i think, although this is my first full sus build so will need guidance.
Im currently looking at some Fox RLT Forks as these have bosses for my Magura HS33s
the rest im not decided on yet. Hollow tech BB, grouspet etc, not really sure on. Already have a rear Fox RPL2 shock that i'm happy with at the mo.
At its most basic, i want it to be pretty light.
Groupset budget is around £90-£100 (second hand decent condition) although i have the time and am wiling to go for separate/newer parts for the harder wearing components (crankset/BB/rear mech).

I have some WTB speed masters (?) on LX hubs that im happy to use at the mo as well with a 9 speed SRAM cassette.

any help/opinions would be appreciated, need some inspiration. Pic of the frame to follow....
