Custom Rune Build

I was surfing through the forums, as I do every day incase anyone is asking questions about our frames, and to keep in touch with new trends etc, and I came across a REALLY nicely thought out high end rune build by 'Err' on the mtbr forums that I thought I would share with you all.

What makes this build stand out for me is that he has chosen very specifically the parts to get the exact geometry he is after (like K9 cups to get a 65.5degree head angle) and keeping it light but plush to shred downhill trails. He also opted for the great option of a custom tuned Elka Stage 5.

Shout out to Ian @ Chromag and Drop N' Zone for help with the build.
