The comment was made to help you out if the bike is for you and you are looking to build up a good bike, you really need to be looking at 20" bikes not 16" bikes. 16" bikes are really designed for people under 4'6" tall. Little, little kids. That's the size of bike I will give my son when he is 5 or 6. When he is 8 or 9 he will be on a 20" bike.

Anyway:
Sprocket: RNC Ti Lite sprocket
Cranks: Profile Racing w/Ti Spindle & Euro BB
Stem: BizHouse Dialyzer
Handlebars: At least 50 good bars on the market - pick some heat treated versions and you are good. Odyssey makes good ones.
Seat Post: Thompson Elite or Macneil post/seat combo

NOTE: The parts listed are exactly what you asked for since you didn't give any budget. The cranks will run about $200.00 - or a little more than the price of the bike you listed. The sprocket is about $50.00 or so. Good bars will be over $100.00.

You didn't even ask about a wheelset (thank God) so listing a $300.00 good/light wheelset wasn't necessary.

If the bike is for you, buy a 20" bike.

3-4 feet???

Go to walmart.

No offense, but you are asking a lot of questions and talking about parts when it sounds like your budget for everything may be $100.00.

GIVE US A BUDGET!

A good complete bike will run you about $600.00 - That's for a very good non-custom built stock complete bike. A custom complete is upwards of $1,200.00 easily.

If you can't jump 10 feet, then you are entry level and really should be looking at a $200-$300.00 entry level complete bike. Otherwise you are really throwing your money away without a clue of what YOU like.

A Backtrail is more than strong enough (and light enough - it's less than 35 pounds, for Christ's sake) for the kind of riding you're doing.

Hey, Dye, I found you a cheaper 16" bike that won't "hurt your ankles"
