Mike, I have been emailing with Christian from bullseye recently, really helpful and is sending me the new style outboard bearing BB for the cranks. Let me know if you want his email address - he has some nos parts being gradually released for sale.
I'll start my ultimate thread soon, and best of luck with your build.

Thanks bud, I've been chatting with him for a while now. I got my hubs, external BB, and spider from him. :wink: Looking forward to seeing pics of your build!

That looks so sweet! I can't wait to see the next round of pictures.

Does anyone know where I can source some black chainrings like the one you have? They are so hard to come by.

I posted a wanted ad for the black chainring and Pino hooked me up with the one pictured. I think I saw ishaw selling some a little while ago. Might be worth a shot. :wink:

I almost forgot to thank Michael (ez054098) for the karma XT seatpost -- it was a huge help!
