Frame was purchased October 2016, Fork was purchased January 2017. Built up for rigid bikepacking, but equally at home on XC trails either rigid or with suspension fork. I ran it both ways, but found the rigid fork worked better for my infrequent commuting via bike.

Soma Juice Brownstone frame, size XL/19.5" Soma sizing is more like a Large, I am 5'11" and it fits well.
Salsa Firestarter 29" fork, 100mm QR, anything cage mounts, lowrider rack mount, clearance for 29 tires easily.
Shimano Deore M615 crankset, new XT BB, current chainring setup is 38/26T, but I also have and would be happy to include 36/24T chainrings that are brand new take off from an SLX M675 crank
Shimano XT M785 E-type 2x10 front derailleur, BRAND NEW purchased 3/1/2017
Shimano XT 2x/3x front shifter with brand new cables and housing. Compatible with both double and triples should you be so inclined.
11-36T cassette, I forget the model, light use.
SRAM XO 10 speed rear shifter, brand new cables and housing, ran to a SRAM GX 10 speed long cage rear derailleur. RDer about 9 months old, I chose it because it also worked really well on a 11-42T cassette if you want to go 1x in the drivetrain department.
Front wheel, HOPE Pro II hub, newer bearings, no play, handbuilt into a new WTB Asym i29 rim, 292mm spokes both sides.
Rear wheel, Shimano XT M756 hub, built into the same WTB Asym i29 rim, 290mm spokes both sides.
I have not taped the rims yet to run tubeless, but I will tape them before the bike is sold.
Pictured are some 45Nrth Nicotine tires, 29x2.35" custom studdable, I've used these for the occasional snowy ride, very light wear on them. Also worked really well the one time I went mountain biking on them. But for the asking price I would be happy to include some new tires of your choice if I can get them (Maxxis, some Schwalbes, all Specialized); let me know what you would like. I'll also include tubeless valves.
Brakes! Formula R1's with 180/160 rotors. Lines are a little long as I took these off another build I had, but brakes are strong, they make the usual formula metallic noise under light braking. Usual very tight clearance between pads/rotors, so I have personally dealt with some drag while riding and never really noticed it.

Pictured, the bike has my preferred Cane Creek Thudbuster, super short Thomson 25.4 stem and Soma Odin 25.4 handlebars. I cut the shift cables and housing with an 80mm stem and 760mm bar so they will fit other setups. I plan on selling it with said 80mm stem/760mm Specialized handlebar (bar came off a co-workers P-Slope I believe, low rise bar), but just like the tires, I would be open to getting something else for you if you'd like. RaceFace? I'll reinstall a normal 27.2 post and nothing fancy saddle for you. Keeping my Time ATAC pedals also.

I am open to some offers, but feel I have priced fairly and willing to get you more new parts (as you should have noticed in ad). Shoot me a message through here or text. I'd like the bike to go to somebody that would use the bike way more than I am capable of at this time. It rides very smoothly, is a lot of fun, and will take somebody on some great adventures.

As pictured with all the heavy junk/extra bits the bike weighs 28lbs 4oz. Easily can go lighter without the seatpost, tubeless setup, no lights, etc.
