For its height it is very long. This 15'' frame should suit me well. I am 1.83m.

I thought that would be the case, they all seem to look low, good standover, but the tt lengths seem to be 'normal' for the frame size. Just wondering as I usually use a 15/17" frame, but if on the off chance I ever came across a Pheonix (or Ti - I wish!) it would be nice to know what would fit me!

good luck with the build and keep us updated!

In the WTB spirit, I'd use a smattering of both XTR and XC-Pro. The best from both groups. Or maybe WTB New Paradigm hubs in XTR blue, and full XTR. All function, and all business. 8)

lovely frame. :D

That's beautiful. I think the T2 is one of the prettiest forks ever designed. The Phoenix isn't too bad either ;)

XC Pro all the way !

Beautiful frame. Good luck with the build.

I say Deore XT. Certainly Shimano transmission anyhow.
