Default Anybody ever build a bike?

Hi Guys.

This past August I got into Moutain biking.. I used to ride dirt bikes and stuff so it came sort of natural..

my first experiences were about getting pretty beat up since I was only riding my old touring bike with no suspension..

Soon after I bought a Full Suspension alum framed beauty.. one of these to be exact..

Then a few weeks later I came across a good deal on a 29R GT sensor 9R..

I have a 2012 model.

Both awesome bikes to have in the stable.

Recently i demo'd one of these.. Surly Moonlander also known as a FATbike.

I decided the Moonlander though a nice bike I would like one in a full suspension.. Hence I think I might have to build one.

I like the frame on the 29r so it would primarily building a swingarm and front fork with modifications here and there..

So, figured I'd give you guys a try since there is lots of know how here..

If I defend myself I am attacked.

My meaningless thoughts are showing me a meaningless world.

My attack thoughts are attacking my invulnerability.

I'd like to think of something smart, but I don't want to hurt myself.
