    Bunch of great options here in every price range. Endless is a great choice though.

    Dont bother with aluminium cogs. Wear out way too fast. Pick up a Chris King stainless. I've found they last the longest.

    Kings are my go to cogs also.

    OP may want to consider going to 34t up front. I run 36x18 or 17 most of the time nowadays where my buddies tend to run 32/33/34x18.

    For trail riding (I don't typically do every possible log roll of epic proportion) a larger chainring is preferable for more of a direct drive feel as opposed to getting below ~17 teeth on the rear cog. Smaller cogs tend to feel a bit more sloppy through chain slack when torquing on the pedals..

    Speaking of cogs and gearing, my spec crave has 32-20 gearing = ratio 1.6/1, which I am OK with. The RSD Sergeant which I'm thinking about, and converting to SS, comes with a 30 chain ring. So I would probably put a 18T to give me ratio of 1.67/1. Are there any advantages to having a bigger chain ring though fairly equal ratios?

    The crave is fun but the chisel rigid fork is hard on the body, so looking around. I'm a mid phat tire fan and want on my ss.
