Free RIde Crank set?

Once again guys i'm asking your info on some componets
i'm looking for a crank set and am thinking about the Race Face North shore DH cranks. I was wondering what u guys think and if you could suggest any other cranks made for Free Ride (cheaper if possible). Also what do u think about the Junior T's for front suspension?

Race Face or Truvative for cranks.
Jr.T is a DH fork, but can be used for freeriding

Jr T = good. Does a good job at handling hits and does not weigh to much.

As for cranks I like BlackSpire. If you want to run 2 rings up front, check out their Dewlie system.

BlackSpire

If you want some indestructable cranks get some Profile Racing's Tubular Chromoly cranks. Check em out here: Profile Racing

Cranks w/bottom bracket for $249.99 if you're really abusive you can get the SS model which is even burlier for $269.99.
