    Default I swear it started as a hardtail (Canfield Bros Riot)

    Having been waiting for a new SC Chameleon frame from around April... it still hasn't arrived and i'm not sure it ever will (as i have now cancelled the order). after my old dually (yukon fx) was stolen the insurance payout increased the money i had laying about for a build. I originally looked at upgrading to a Ti Honzo to keep up that HT love... but not coming this year.

    canfield was having a sale and i already have a 140mm 2018 pike so here we are.

    not sure how the photos on my old phone are going to turn out but here they are.

    Current parts i have / plan to purchase:
    Frame: Large CB Riot Black
    Shock: DVO Jade, came with a 400lbs spring waiting on a 550 from NS
    Fork: 140mm Pike 2018
    Wheels: going to get some hope 4 built up with stans flow with some hans dampf rubber for now
    Headset: plan to buy a cane creek 40
    Stem: waiting on a 50mm from JT
    Bar: i got a random carbon one when a local bike store closed for $30 800mm
    Brakes: Hope V4
    Drivetrain: GX Eagle or XT, leaning towards the XT for cost of replacements
    Seatpost: going to get a revive once i work out if my legs are long enough for a 160mm it looks like it might be a close thing
    seat: Giant saddle that i got cheap, thinking of a silverado or some other seat with a low rise from rails to top
    pedals: i have the Vaults from my HT or the CB ones that came with the frame.
    Grips of some sort of grips happy for suggestions

    Looking like a killer build. Loved my time on the Riot. From what I hear a coiled Riot is a monster

    At least you have your priorities in order.
    Some people are like Slinkies. They serve no useful purpose, but they're fun to push down the stairs.
