So I've just got hold of a used, lightly abused carbon nomad frame. Ordered myself a new kashima rp23 for it, just need to clean up the linkage and put some new bearings in it. Then I can start the build! A new fork will be bought eventually. Am thinking the new Marzocchi 55 CR.

The build will be as follows: (for now!)

Rear Derailleur: XTR shadow plus M785
Cassette: Shimano XT 11-36
Chain: Shimano XT
Cranks: raceface atlas
Chainrings: Gamut race ring 35t
Bottom Bracket: Hope stainless, black.

I like these.

I think you should go all out and treat it to pair of 55 RC3 Ti's. They're loads better than the CR versions, especially as you've got a nice rear shock to go on it.

So I've finally started building it, just need to build some wheels and I'll be there!
When I do go for a new fork, x-fusions new 160/34mm slant fork looks like a new contender...
