    Evil Imperial Spec Help?

    I decided to go withe the Evil Imp for my Freeride/dirjumping/trail bike with a couple downhill trips to west and jiminy. I need a little help deciding on which fork,crankset,rear derailleur,and shifters to get.I was thinking along the lines of this:
    Fork:Marz ZR150 fr1
    Crankset:FSA V-Drive Extreme(Im a little iffy on this one)
    Rear Derailleur:Sram X.9
    Shifters:Sram X.9

    are there better choices specifically on the fork and crankset?I do not want to spend over 700 on the fork(which the marz zrt150 is)and do not want to spend over 200-250 on the cranks.So are there alternatives?and as far as the rear derailleur and shifters go, are they good choices?Thanks

    i don't think they make the z150 anymore... i think it's just the z1 (fr3, which has ssv. and fr1, which has hsvc). i would go with a manitou sherman or try to find a used z150...


    as for the cranks, i hear from just about everybody that they are flexy... very flexy.

    i have also seen them in person, and are really small and don't look beefy at all.

    i would go with holzfellers, hussefelts, rf evolve, or used (or new if you can find them) rf north shores...

    i have heard nothing but good things about Sram... my next bike will have no shimano parts at all, it will be all sram drivetrain.

    hope that helps.

    by the z150 i meant this years version of it(the fr1).Is the boxxer race better for the price or is it like the stance kingpin where it will just fall apart.The manitou sounds good also.I might just stick to the marz.I will count out those cranks and try to find a north shore for a resonable price.Thanks for the info!

    i'm not sure that you would want a double crown fork for an all around bike... especially one made just for DH (boxxer)...

    as for the north shores, check out beyond bikes...
