    Enduro SL Pro frameset - how would you build it?

    I'm considering now to buy the Pro frameset instead the Expert model and add the other components... it's going to be cheaper (depends...) and more satisfying.

    Now, how would you assemble it? Here is what I came up with, but I'd like to receive your opinion.

    Rear Der/Shifters:
    I've never used Sram, so I don't know what would be better between X0 and XTR. Unfortunately the sram trigger shifters don't look good to me, I am too used to (and like a lot) shimano rapid rise system (I know there are many detractors out there).
    So I would go with XTR rapid rise and uhm.....shifters... LX?

    Crankset: don't know, my choices among 1. Raceface Evolve XC X-Type 2. Shimano XT 3. Truvativ Stylo Team

    Pedals: Crank Bro Candy SL

    Cassette: Sram PG-990

    Chain: Sram PG-991

    Brakes: Avid juicy 7 160+185 (don't know, suggestions welcome)

    Handlebar: FSA - K-Force riser carbon

    Saddle: San Marco Arami


    what ya think?

    Shimano XT-cranks / 34T middle ring / Gamut P-25
    Shimano XT or XTR medium cage derailleur
    Easton EA70 aluminium riser bar
    Wellgo MG-1 magnesium flats
    Tioga Spider or SLR saddle
    Maverick Speedball post (or Thomson which is already included in the frameset)
    SRAM PC-971 (much cheaper, just as durable, buy 2 of 'm to swap around)

    I'd go XT for crank, as you like XT shifters I'd get those too.
    XT everything really, unless you like formula oro brakes having great reviews.
    Carbon Bar. Quite cost effective. I like 970/959 pedals though.
