    First freeride setup

    Hi, I'm looking for a hardtail freeride/DJ bike so I've decided on the kona five-o deluxe but the reviews say some of the components aren't quite strong enough. Should I just get the frame and make my own setup or ride it stock? If I go with my own setup I will have to keep it under 1k. I'd appreciate some tips on what components to use.


    Thanks

    Wheels, brakes, cranks, pedals, and derailer.

    Haha, so all of them?

    You will be fine, I assure you. Learn how to maintain your bike and take care of it. Don't "ghost ride the whip" (if you know what I mean) and everything on that bike will hold up to years of regular use. No part is really designed to get smacked into a rock or tree at mach 7, so even if you bought top of the line stuff, chances are you'd break it just like you would the lower end stuff under the same crash circumstances.

    And you will not even touch the quality of the stock build on that bike building it up custom at that budget.
