    Default Gunmetal Evil Wreckoning Build Thread

    So I've Eventually decided to go through with building an Evil Wreckoning. As I was after a long travel 29er as more of a "Quiver Killer" rather than a XC or DH beast.

    So far the spec is:

    Frame: 2017 Evil Wreckoning Size L in Gunmetal
    Rear Shock: Monarch RC3 ( will eventually change to a Topaz)
    Fork: DVO Diamond BOOST axle in Black
    Handlebars: No idea, Will be using Deity blacklabels till I decide

    Pedals: HT X2 silver/gray

    Front Hub: I9 Torch 32h BOOST Black

    Front Rim: Easton ARC 35mm
    Rear Rim: Easton ARC 35mm
    Spokes: Sapim Race Black
    Nipples: Sapim Brass Black
    Tires: F: Minion DHR 2 Widetrail R: Minion SS
    Tubes: Whats a tube? :) Stans Sealant
    Total Weight: No idea - will post when built
    Other: Wolf Tooth Dropper Remote, 32/34t RF cinch chainring

    The frames rougly 2 weeks away but everything else is on its way
    The build kinda got accelerated as Stu gave me a killer deal on the frame, fork and post. Shoutout to Stu and hte great service him and Defcon offer :)

    Is there a reason you are going with the long cage rear derailleur? Iirc the medium one works with the 11-46 cassette
