    poor topic heading.

    and wrong section.

    lighter wheels. lighter fork. poor pedals.

    check your post in 'Racing' you can get better forks than that (in fact they are no good for 4x)

    I posted a link for you.... :wink:
  • personally i'd go:

    wheels: mavic ex721s on hope pro 2s front
    mavic ex721 on halo dj disc rear (saves ss conversion kit, may need tensioner fitted though) nb: if you don't like this set up 2x ex721s on pro 2s will work well anyway

    spokes personally i'd go for a stainless steel, something like dt champion ss

    Your gear set up looks wrong, revert to this for the magic ss formula:

    forks: marzocchi 4x wc

    probably stick a brake on the front aswell, esspecially if you're serious about 4x

    personal choice on cranks, i'd go: Truvativ holzfeller ISIS DH

    oh, and dmr v12s

    hope it gives you a few things to think about ;)

    My bike blinds your eyes like Acid

    Double butted spokes over pg, build into a better wheel.

    That version of the 5050Xs apparently have very poor grip, so either go for the XX version or look elsewhere - SlimJims?

    Yeah, Marz 4X will do a better job, if you're going for 4X as well look for lighter wheels that the SAS - probs similar to what's already suggested

    I would upgrade the headset to FSA Pig Pro

    Cranks: Shimano Hones are far cheaper, and pretty damn light as well

    Personally I would go for something like a Profile stem with Gusset Prison bars or something similar, but thats just me

    Otherwise looks good
  • thanks everybody youve been a great help and have saved me from wasting my money.
