    headset. lots of good ones to choose from.

    stem. direct mount im guessing. how much or little rise are you looking for.

    cranks. weight? can you go XT light? or maybe atlas? or if you want bomb. go saint.

    Saint is the easiest to get. As for the change from vivid to rc4 - I'd wait. I have one on my frame but I still need to get a proper spring to test it. If I'd to change shock I'd go elka.

    For stem - Imho go as low as possible - canfield seems like the best option. Headset - is it 1.5 to 1 1/8? If yes don't go sunline unless you want to modify it. Cane Creek is legit.

    Other insights? Straitline silent guide - weight almost the same as the srs+ but stronger backplate. The one on the new e13 scares me.

    any advantages to specidic headset?
    you're right, direct mount, lowest rise.
    whats the main difference with xt crank or saint?

    Cane Creek doubleXC flush (internal) headset, if the fork is a 1 1/8 steerer version. This will help keep the front end nice and low.

    Cranks - get Saints, never look back. Seriously.

    I really like the Vivid feel on my Zuza...I'd say give it a go and ride it, and then figure out if there is a particular behaviour you don't like, and try to find the most appropriate shock at that time to remedy the problem.

    Stems...go ahead, knock yourself out, there are so many good choices now...pick one you like and go ride!
