    Whatever you do, you can't go wrong with a SRAM drivetrain.

    Out damn Shimano.

    Dude a frame like that deserves only high quality components. What's the intended use?

    Everyone has strenths and weakness. For example:

    British - Humor
    German - Engineering
    French - Food

    You don't want:

    British - Food
    German - Humor
    French - Engineering


    Here are the "best" folks in the MTB world:

    Shifting - SRAM
    Cranks - Shimano, Trutativ(EXTERNAL bearings only)
    Fork - Marzocci, Rock Shox
    Bars/Post - Easton
    Rubber - Panaracer, Hutchinson, WTB
    Hubs - Shimano, Chris King, Swiss, Hugi
    Rims- Mavic, Sun
    Headset - Cane Creek, Chris King
    Brakes - Avid, Hayes, Hope
    Pedals - Crank Bros, Time

    Here are the "best" folks in the MTB world:

    Shifting - SRAM
    Cranks - Shimano, Trutativ(EXTERNAL bearings only)
    Fork - Marzocci, Rock Shox
    Bars/Post - Easton

    Replace the Zocci with a Fox for the fork and you have a pretty good setup there. Marzocci's XC forks aren't even close to Fox's.

    thats 90% B.S. ISIS is good for 90% of the riders out there. I dont think Chris king and Race face would also make ISIS if it was that bad. Been running my Stylo Teams without issue. But truvativ makes some of the best cranks imo, hussefelts great stuff

    This thread is hillarious. What about raceface and fsa for cranks. Shimano hubs are garbage, they are heavy and have low engagement points, they hold value simply because of how cheap they are. isis is bad, I am not touching that as thats just a foolish statement based on someone reading too much into marketting hype. Thomson seatpost make easton look like tinfoil...fsa headset?...

    I will wait till the guy tells us how he plans to build the bike up before I start offering up parts to use. Thats what determines the parts. And who said this is a xc build. Its and asx people. Its a freaking freeride frame (a dead sexy one at that).
