    return that spoke wrench immediatly! Those triangle things are peices of crap. figure out what nipple size you have and get a normal spoke wrench for it.

    Sweet dude, Ive started to get boxes of parts in the mail as well. Hopefully by mid next week ill have all the parts minus the frame.

    Im building up a BT raven 5.0 also. I guess they are real popular. For a stem i went with the 100mm by 15 degree rise, i wasnt real sure what to get either, but i had a 100mm on my old bike so i decided might as well get that and if i dont like it ill get a new one.
    What size BB are you using? I have a 118mm, and im starting to worry that it will not be wide enough to fit my cranks on it.

    I got a 128mm BB. It's a Truvativ GigaPipe Team DH, it looks pretty beefy. How big is your bashguard?

    I hope you arent planning on using a trials bash on the v drives. I had to cut a section out of my truvative 22t max to make it fit. The second week I had mine the pedal threads stripped (they were tight) on the non drive side. I sent them in and they had me a new one in 4 days. Good customer service.

    Im # 3 on the raven 5.0 band wagon. I was looking for a bb the right size the onther night, did you get that one from webcyclery?

    I got a Granny God bash, so its not really a trials one. I didnt get it from Webcyclery, I got it from the shop here in town, but it feels really smooth, even though its not on the frame or anything

    i decided to get the bonz crankset, so it has the built in bash guard. Im not real sure how big it is. Im going to have a 20t ring on the front.

    yeah, i almost got the new bonz, but i wanted to see how i like having a real trials frame before i buy stuff that is crazy expensive, you shouldnt have clearance issues with the bonz, i think the bash is the size of a 22t ring.

    hey, I've been there, almost the same setup too, back in the days of my 18"er. Double chainrings so I could get to work on my bike during the summer, and then trialsin all afternoon around uni and city centre. Those were the days. Simplicity leaves more room for enjoyability.
