You're in the UK, right?

These guys often have very competitive prices, and you won't spend so much on shipping.

Tommy Lee, from Birmingham?

I would guess Alabama, but I could be wrong :p

Before you get a fork or wheels, you'll need to decide which front hub type you want. 20mm axle would be great, but it will probably cost more for the fork and sometimes the wheels too.

If you are going to use a QR 9mm front axle type hub/wheel, this is a good deal for a basic DJ fork:

For cranksets, if your budget is super tight:

If there is a little more room in the budget, these are a good deal considering the BB is included:

It'd be cheaper to just buy a complete new or used bike. If you're set on a build then purchase one that has the same parts like seat tube and headtube diameter, top or bottom pull front derailleur, and bb shell and switch em over.

It's for the older windows operating systems, but it should at least help you along:

If you can afford it, I would suggest going with a thru-axle for your front fork for aggressive riding. It also means finding a thru-axle (of the same size) front wheel. Azonic outlaws are a very popular choice for reasonably priced bombproof wheels, but understandably they are a bit more expensive than most.
