i decided i wanted to build a new bike
after a bit of investigation i decided i wanted a specialized and a lightish xc bike
so i decided on a camber pro, but i didnt want a full bike as i wanted a higher spec bike than they produce and i wanted a 3x9 setup not 2x10

so here is a pic of the standard bike

Image

and here is how ive started its a brand new 2011 old stock frame

Image
Image

ive allready got some forks sorted
dt swiss magnesium with 15mm through axle

Image

sat in place with a fsa headset

Yes it's a small frame, I could get away with the medium but I like to ride smaller frames

That's a nice looking bike.

Which Superstar.hubs are they? I was thinking about a set of their wheels with the Trizoid hubs for my SX Trail.

Are those forks ok with such large rotors? I only ask as some forks come with a limit.

they are switch evo hubs and stans flow wheels
they seem really good quality, and they are currently on sale at £200 which seems pretty cheap to me
the forks are fine with my brakes, ive never had an issue with big discs
i have had pace rc 40's, bomber 33's, and rockshox tora's all with 203mm discs
