Looking for a few assorted bits for a build, and noting that people have some seriously good taste in parts on this board.

What I've got so far:

Marin Mount Vision frame (no disk tab, will retrofit a mount)

Ready to go on:

STX shifters, XTR mechs, XT cranks, XTR bottom bracket, XTR front & XT rear cogs, chain, acor bars, carbon seatpost, seatpost clamp
hope bigun mavic 717 wheel w/180mm disks
marzocchi bomber dual crown forks

What I do not have yet:

hydraulic brake calipers & levers (hope being a fairly obvious bias)
seat
headset bearing
handlebar stem
skewers
rear shock upgrade

___

Also, I am pulling the forks off another hardtail, which I am seeking some 1+1/8" rigid forks with disk tabs for.

Have had a few fitting squirrels with the forks and the hope wheels, so the bombers are staying on the current ride.

Have now procured some White UD150s instead, which will add to the brake incompatibility issues, but hey ho.

So am now looking for a front caliper which will fit those.

______

Have got rear shock. Stratos NOS air shock.

Seems that these forks have IS mounts, so have picked up a set of Hope C2s, so that's the brakes sorted. Have procured the A2Z mount, which weighs loads because of the steel plate, and also doesn't fit on the dropout, but it's a milled-aluminium block once you get all the silly parts off, which I will be able to mod onto the frame using other methods.

_________

Still need:

stem
seat tube (30.9mm I think)
seat
grips

also:
some shims/spacers for the front axle
