    First start with whats broken. I would sugesst sram but that is personal prefrence. Sram stuff has a very distinct "click" when you shift. Its sometimes hard for me to tell f it has shifted between two close ration gears, especially with a fullface. I would also go w/ an x9 shifter and x7 rr der. From what I hear Diablo is pretty rocky so I imagine you'll be going through some deraillures.

    What kind of frame is it? If its not a Morphine or a Evil Imp or a super burly FR HT I would strongly reccomend not putting a DC fork on it. We can't really help on the fork without knowing the frame.

    While your'e at it, why don't you list some other parts on your bike.

    alright, its a brodie bruzza, truvative howitzer huzzefelt cranks, probably either of those wheelsets soon. hayes hfx9 brakes (8" in front 7" in back)and the idea of a new frame crossed my mind but not for a while
