    Get a Thomson post. Pass on the 50/50 pedals. Swap the Holzfellers for Saints.

    Brakes... depends. If you're looking for massive power, go for the Codes. If you want to keep things a bit lighter, check out the 2008 XTs. For shifting... SRAM x9.

    Regular Codes are better. Code 5 uses a Juicy 5 lever. Both share the same caliper. The Code lever is cam actuated and pivots on sealed cartridge bearings though. The Code also uses aluminum backed pads where as the Code 5 uses steel backed pads.

    what he said. theres a gagillion choices out there. you could probably be really happy with all of them. but I'd robably just stick with what he said, since he picked out some great choices that aren't finicky.
