X9 is possible, unless I can find a set of XT for much cheaper.I've got more suits than Liberace, but less than Eastvailhucker.

you should buy my turner.... and use the parts from that.
I do have a bitching Psylo Dual Air too.

Are you interested in selling any of the parts separately??
I want a good build on this frame, but it needs to be on a reasonable budget.
Probably going to go for a Z1 up front.I've got more suits than Liberace, but less than Eastvailhucker.

I need off the frame 1st before any of the parts go.

I figured. Keep me informed.I've got more suits than Liberace, but less than Eastvailhucker.

A pike would work nicely.

Bang for buck components, IMHO:
Pike or Z1

I have a set of Alex DX32's in my garage for the time being. They are heavy, but I'm used to riding a nearly 50 ound V10, so it'll still seem light to me.I've got more suits than Liberace, but less than Eastvailhucker.

road gap pedals (sealed cartridge bearing), they have a lifetime warranty, nice thin profile, and are grippy as hell.
get rid of the splinned cranks and bb, they break. the new technology is much better, especially on a freeriding hardtail (tough on bbs).
but more importantly, tires, they make the biggest difference. I am riding nevegals for the shore and usually blue grooves in the interior. I used to swear by michelins, but they are expensive, short lived, and not worth it unless it is pissing rain on you all the time.
lose the front derailer, run a 34 or a 36 ring, and through some sram on the back
