Mountain Bike Parts?

Thought I would post here as I know alot of you guys ride. Sometime after the first of the year I am going to build up a mountian bike for my son. He was given nice carbon hardtail frame to race this upcoming year. It is a 26" wheeled bike. I know with the popularity of 29er's some of you may have 26" "used stuff" you would consider selling off.

Front fork - Sid World Cup 100mm, DT Swiss or Fox 32F100
Wheels - thinking Stan's No Tubes, Podium, Alpine or Crest

Trying to keep it light since he is only 10 years old and 80 lbs. 2011 will be his 3rd year of racing mountain bikes and second racing road.

I have been lurking Ebay, but as I mentioned, I just thought I would post here.

29er"? pfft. 650b is where it's at. Actually 26" is still alive and well in my word but I hear you about the 29er thing.

Have you tried, or a local mtb forum (we have in nj for example)? I find better deals on classifieds and even online retailers vs ebay for mtn bike stuff.

10 year old racing that many years - that's really cool. I can't get my kids to ride much at all save for around town.
