I'm looking for some help/advice. I'm building up a new 05 stinky supreme and need some help with crankset/bottom bracket choice. I'm building up a wheelset from the hub supplied with the frame. It's a 150mm rear spacing. I'm looking at Shimano Saint and Race Face Diabolous or Evolve DH. I also need to put thought into chainguide and bashguard. Was considering blackspire ns-1 or e-13 srs. The bike will be used mainly for lift accessed freeride with the occasional DH run, (trail riding would be extremely rare except when I first get it built!)
Any advice, opinions, or thoughts would be greatly appreciated!

Saint , cheaper , lighter and just as strong , also the left arm is not a pressfit on the axel as opposed to RF(the right arm) which has a slight taper.
Chaindevice : been running a NS1 for 3 yrs , no prob. whatso ever.
Cheers

Great looking bike twon, like the sticker strip on the rear shock and fork, did you build it up your self? If so where did you buy the frame from? I have a 05 Stinky but the Supreme is so much more hardcore.

Yes, built it myself. I was fortunate enough to get the frame from wheel world for $999.

Yea I saw that deal, just did not have the money for it at the time and then it was sold out when I got the money for it. Do you know of any other stores that sell Kona frames?

Ohh your bike is so sweet, cant stop looking at it, just have to imagin it with 888 RC and e.13 SRS and it would be like my build. Is there a reason you went for the 66 not a dualcrown fork?

Its good for the tight switchbacks on our DH trail and for X-Ups.
