    Just ordered a 13 bandit 29

    Excited to build my first fs 29. I have a yelli screamy now but have been wanting a fs.
    Recommendations for a fork and crank?

    Fork: obligatory pike/fox 34 recommendation. I'd probably go for the pike at 140 if you can swing it, but I would also give the X-fusion Trace a hard look if you can find one.

    Cranks: whatever works within your budget that you mount a single ring to. Race Face Evolves can be found pretty inexpensively.

    Will 140 work fine on the 2013?

    I run a Fox 34 CTD at 130mm on my Bandit 29. It provides a good all around front end. I also run a 50mm stem with 745mm bars and love the setup.
