The ins and outs of building a bike is a bit of a minefield. I'm learning heaps so can't complain too much. :)

Unsure which fork to go for at this stage so will have to get back to you on the dropouts. Are the 2013 revelation and sektor any good as there doesn't seem to be any reviews on them yet?

As for the rear, I'm thinking about running a 9mm or 10mm QR thru instead of the standard QR. Is it worth doing, and if so, is 9mm stiff enough or would 10mm be a better option?

Progress... flow/evo superstar rims and slx groupset ordered and on the way.

Does anyone know if the Sektor R 2012 is any good as I can't seem to locate any reviews on it? Is it much the same as the RL which received good reviews?

I think the RL has lockout, they seem pretty close in price to Revelations though

RL has motion control damping. R is just a rebound adjuster.
