    I have a fuel ex8 for going on a year, no cracking or slope in the pivots yet. I ride pretty rocky stuff but no jumps, weigh around 180.

    Totally application driven.

    A full suspension frame could be made out of concrete and not feel much different than Al or steel or whatever. You've got pretty huge shock absortion so the...

    Assuming everything functions correctly and generally meets your riding needs (ie suspension travel, fit, etc) I'd say brakes and tires. Wheels are probably third.

    1-Rotational weight has way less influence than people want to claim. In fact so does non-rotational weight. It's really just manufacturer marketing trying to sell you more...

    I think there's a big gray area between in riding on smooth dirt roads/trails vs. letting loose with fat knobbies and suspension over roots, rocks, drops, jumps, etc.

    You can't use a threadless headset because the fork steerer is too short for a stem so you still have no way to hold the bearing preload.

    You might be able to find another 1 1/8" threaded headset...

    I think you lose way more time braking on sketchy descents than you gain by not adding 1-2% of your total body and bike weight for a mountain bike or suspension.
