That's dialed. And exactly what my bike was going to end up as. I actually was just thinking about getting the Kink wheels and cranks too. I'm getting the Kink Lyra tires because I ride dirt also and the Hawks are too slippery for dirt.

I'm gonna go with the Kink. I totaled everything out and it'll be close to $1300 when I get done. So worth it. I'm excited.

The Kink Hubs are properly well thought out, have you seen the little write up they did about them on their site? Tony Hamlin is building them up to Kink Rims & they go through all the details & what went into making them. Seriously Cool. I'm building up a Kink right now too :D Got some parts on there way from Empire & Albes, Should be here sometime next week! Tracking them atm haha.

If you get an incite hub get a set of spare female bolts too. Lately i've been seeing a lot of the bolts snap, for as supportive I am of Kink i'm very disappointed with the released version of the incite because the prototypes had virtually no problems.

well topsey since well educated in bmx parts what material should i look for in fork and cranks

Full chromoly heat treated forks and heat treated chromoly for cranks. Aluminum is an option for cranks but the pedal bosses tend to have issues and personally I'm not a fan of the pinch bolt. But it's up to you

I'll be starting out just cleaning cars, taking trash out, driving customers home, and going on donut runs. Basically the bitch job. but for $9/hr and over 50 hours a week. I'm not complaining. Gotta start somewhere. Haha

All I can say is that the Kink Viridian front hub is absolute garbage. Shit. Versions 1 and 2. Pegless or not, the bearings still blow out, even if you don't tighten them down hard. This is like the 5 times it's blown out and I'm just done. I'm gonna trade it for a Vandero 2 laced to a Shadow Orbis and get it over with.
