Fit FAF-K Folding tire (2.10'')

What should I upgrade next? Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

Whatever breaks next. It would suck to spend all your money on say a new pair of forks only for your Frame to snap a week later.

ok. thx- but what does sprocket drive mean- I know that you don't need a sprocket bolt, but what are the advantages for that?

No sprocket bolt like you said, so one less part to tighten and one less part to break. It's also smoother and gets rid of any tight spots in your drive train that would typically be caused by your sprocket bolt. In theory it should last longer than bolt drive too, but that's not proven yet since it hasn't been out long enough. Also, it removes the need to weld on the piece for the sprocket bolt on the crank, which means the cranks look cleaner and should be stronger because they're not getting the extra heat from the weld.

cranks and fork would be next. Look into odyssey forks/cranks, also S&M pitchfork xlt. I'm also a fan of profile cranks (shorter 165-170mm)

save your money. If a part isn't broke, it doesn't need replacing.

Instead, go ride hard and then you'll figure out what parts to buy.

get the 165mm because theyre shorter so your feet dont hit the pegs, theyre stronger and keep you more stable during spin tricks since you feet are more centered towards the bottom bracket. Also if you're a weight weenie, they weigh less
