So I've decided to get my hands dirty and build my own bike over the upcoming months - a little project to keep me busy sort of speak.

So I've managed to get my hands on a nifty full suspension frame (as mentioned in the title - Kona CoilAir Deluxe 2009). But seen as my knowledge regarding bike parts is relatively limited, I could do with a helping hand!!

The spec that would come with the built fully standardised would be as follows;

Frame tubing : Kona Clump 7005 Aluminum Magic 6+1 System w/DOPE
Rear Shock : Fox RP2 w/XV Sleeve
Fork : Fox 36 Float RC2 165mm w/20mm Dropouts
Headset : FSA Gravity SX Custom
Crankarms : RaceFace Evolve XC
Chainrings : Guard/34/22 (44/32/22 for Europe only)
B/B : RaceFace Evolve X-Type
Pedals : Shimano M520 Clipless
Chain : Shimano LX
Freewheel : Shimano SLX (11-34, 9spd)
F/D : Shimano SLX
R/D : Shimano XT Shadow
Shifters : Shimano SLX
Handlebar : Kona BC/OB Riser
Stem : Kona XC/BC Deluxe
Grips : Kona LOG
Brakes : Shimano SLX Hydraulic Disc
Brake Levers : Shimano SLX Hydraulic
Front hub : Mavic Crossline Wheelset 20mm
Rear hub : Mavic Crossline Wheelset 12mm
Spokes : Mavic Crossline Wheelset
Tyres : Maxxis High Roller 26x2.35
Rims : Mavic Crossline Wheelset
Saddle : WTB Pure V Race FR
Seatpost : Kona XC/BC Deluxe
Seat clamp : Kona QR

I've already acquired a seat post, QR clamp, saddle, avid brakes, bars as well as grips. Basically looking for some alternatives to deviate from the standard set up. I don't have a set budget over all, it'll be a project over time - so fire away :). Area's I mainly require assistance are within the wheel, gear and crank set department - which are value for money but yet still robust. I don't do really intense riding, but enjoy a bit of downhill and rocky terrain.

Thanks in advance for any input!
