Unless you are going to adapt a disc, would recommend some bling maguras - try some red raceline tomac ones.

This is going to be super cool.

You thinking triple crowns - bombers/junior t's or single crown?

Junior T's or Monster's.
I've got some single crown shivers on my norco, so maybe use those and get 130mm modern fork for the norco?
Don't know, this is going to take a lot of thinking about :oops:
Tomac magies is a good shout, i've been a bit blinkered towards discs as i have some E4 hopes 8) which would be cool.

Patriot colours would be good like you said. Think you should have waited to put this one up though haha! Tease.

Have you any wheels sorted?

These would be perfect in my opinion:

They would certainly be nice.
I'd like to get silver rims/red hubs. Don't want to 'weigh it down' with too much black :D
I'll keep an eye on them :wink:

Looks a great frame, I did consider it myself. Swing arm looks well made. Should make for an interesting build. Look forward to following it 8)

She might end up with single crown forks as a temporary measure, but dual crowns are the long term goal :wink:

Having said that the build 'goalposts' are moving on an hourly basis at the moment :lol:
