Don't get sealed pedals, it's a waste of money. The Macneil cassette is not supposed to be that good, get a Demoltion cassette in the back laced up to hazard lights with DT swiss spokes, or you could even go to Hoffman Generator rims if you need to save the money. As for forks, get anything Odyssey or Sunday! and you are fine.

I always run sealed, when I'm buying pedals I don't even consider unsealed. They aren't a waste.

I wouldn't believe it.

Proper cassette on Danscomp for $84, then use one of the codes

I wouldn't buy a Proper cassette unless I was majorly limited on cash.

Ill look into demolition because i've heard good about them and they are probably my second choice and i think im gonna go with a cheaper unsealed pedal and maybe get them off ebay to save some money.
i still need suggestions on chainwheel and forks though

Good ideas.
Chainwheel, pretty much anything 7075.
Forks, anything Odyssey or Sunday!. Primo Kamikaze's are also good as well and come with a "no questions asked" warantee.

Yes, although the cassette has nothing to do with the fork. I'm pretty positive the fork comes in 3/8ths.
