Was never a fan of the mantra but that's one bike that does actually suit carbon wheels for once!

Apart from the Spinergy's being Spin's on mine and a few other modern bits, on paper my build is almost identical to yours! Even the colour co-ordination of cranks, cables, bolts etc....

Nice work and awesome build.... Means I don't have to keep picturing mine in my head! (if my frame ever gets here) 8)

What is your votec fork like? Does it have a lot of stiction? Is it progressive or does it just fly through the travel once you hit a bump?
I have one myself (GS4 air2) and the suspension characteristics are so different from any other suspension fork I've had.

Mine work great but was tuned by a suspension Guru here in Italy...
