    Hi all,

    I'm new to the site and have just ordered the Rush 600. I have a couple of questions regarding the bike/upgrades. Firstly i am looking to upgrade the cranks,any suggestions and secondly the 06 catalouge is conflicting regarding the rearshock that comes with this model Fox float v Fox float R my lbs was'nt sure does anyone know which rear shock comes standard with this model? i'd appreciate any feedback regarding these queries.

    cheers Lukee.

    If you have the money, go with an XTR crank. It is the most expensive, but honestly, it is the best. It will save you almost 1 full pound over your stock crank. Second option, take a look at the Race Face Dues.

    In my opinion the Race Face Deus and the Shimano XT are pretty much equals. The RF slightly lighter (~30g). Making the XT a great price point / performance choice!

    The AM Classic BB is a great part. They are also a great company. I have zero expiernce with FSA but have herd peole say that their claiemd weights are often way off.

    Another good combo is the Truvativ stylo isis on cambraibikes ofr 99 bucks. You can also match that crank with an american classic bb for aobut the same set up but 100 bones cheaper
