    new build (MC Fury frame)

    I am building a new mountain bike with a Mountain Cycle Fury frame. This is my first time building a bike. The frame will take a 125-160 fork. So I looking at either RockShox Sektor RL Dual Position Coil 150 26" Suspension Fork Diffusion Black MotionControl Crown Adjust 9QR, or one with a maxle lite 15. Which one would be better for all mountain? Any input would be appreciated.

    do yourself a HUGE favor and get a set of XT brakes... or anything other than Elixirs. I have 2 sets, one is flawless and the other has been a PITA since I bought it: sticky piston & constant howling.

    I'll second that. Go with SLX for hydro's or Avid BB7 for mechanical. Both will be better in the long run. It's not that the Elixirs are bad (when they work), it's just they don't have a good reputation for consistency and quality.

    You'll find many bleeds, changing of pads and annoying rubbing issues in your future.

    I found a set of BB7's with levers on Amazon, I updated my list of parts. As i had a BB7 on my old bike, which my wife wants now, so can't take the back BB7 off and use it on my new bike.

    Even though they shipped me a QR fork instead of a maxle lite 15, not to upset about it. As I can upgrade to a maxle lite fork later.

    There is no need anymore to run 3x10, I would go 2x10. Get a rear derailleur with a clutch mechanism. Definitely go with shimano XT or SLX brakes. Look for a lighter wheel set, 2300+ grams is gonna be very heavy!
