Budget-ish FC setup questions

I have reeaallyy wanted to get a freecoaster for a WHILE and i finally might buy one. However, because the fc is more of a want, not a need (i really need new pedals and tires and stuff), im trying to keep it as inexpensive as i can. on dans the cheapest fc guard is the cult match hubguard, however im planning on buying the demolition rotator. Will that guard work with the rotator because theyre both pretty much khe clones? Also, does anyone know anything about the eclat trippin straight rim ? Its pinned but it doesnt seem too bad at first glance, i know eclat is legit and i do the occasional 5'+ drop but it should be able to support 130 pounds yeah? Thanks.

spend the extra 10 and get the federal, or better yet the cult
id go for a trippin or quadrant or something used if you can

The only advantages to the federal that i can see are a thrust bearing which seeing as i dont do crankflips i dont really think thats worth $15 more. Why do you think i should get the federal? Im not spending 30 more for the cult aha

the cult is definitely worth the 30 extra and more. the thrust bearing on both increases smoothness and durablility, and the cult is indestructible by coaster standards with its needle roller bearings
if it were me, id get the cult, no matter how much i hate the company
its a damn good hub

You could always get a hubgaurd like the fbm hubguad that will work on basically every hub. I run the alianation rush v2 ive had it since it came out with a fbmhub gaurd ad i haven't had much trouble with it, also i think The ezra freecoaster works wit the eastern pop and lock hub not sure how well it works though

Nothing like a Good day of Digging and Riding

Daily Grind LT, chromoly and very inexpensive ($20-). Universal for all 14mm hubs. Dans is currently sold out. Call them and ask when they will have them back, I believe it should be soon. If not, order elsewhere.

Also, lace it to a Sun Rhyno Lite XL. Incredibly cheap and durable. There is no better rim in its price range.

Also, empire has 10t Odyssey Reloader coasters for like $90 if you can deal with a 9t.

Reloader to Rhynolite w/ Daily Grind LT

the fbm hubguard really sucks, dont get it
aluminum slips easy and its pretty wide, and doesnt slide well at all
