You'll like the holzfellers. Much better than the king earls. Like how your bike looks, reminds me of mine...lol. Have you tried a half link to get the tension right? Tensioners suck IMO, more to break. 36/14 sounds good. I ride XC on my DJ/DS rig with 38/18. Slam seat for gnarly stuff, up a little for more XC stuff.
OT: What did you use to strip your frame? I'm thinking of stripping my panic. I know its silver already, but there is a layer of black paint under the silver, and looks like crap when it gets scratched.
