Stem, Bars and hubs

I'm trying to build my dream bike and I can't seem to pick out the perfect stem, bars and hubs. I picked out every part already and everything looks solid so far. I just can't find a good stem, bars and hubs without someone saying, my friend snapped that, or my bars slip etc..

So I've had a few things I ran into:

Stem: Colony official, Premium sub 10v2, Primo Aneyerlator 2 and the S&M redneck.
Bars: Kink Human, Mutiny Glamroid, WTP OD
Hubs: Profile Mini's 3/8 front 14mm back, Animal Javelins, Shadow Raptors, Gsports.

Please feel free to suggest better options than the ones listed above. Btw, I ride street and park mostly and a tiny bit of dirt at times if that helps. I also runs pegs and love grinding. I greatly appreciate the help. Thanks.

if we told you what parts to get then it wouldn't be YOUR dream bike, it would be ours and i'll bet you'll see about 50 different things people will suggest you buy.

Deffinitely get the Primo or Premium stem, Mutiny Glamroids, and Javelins for sure.

And animal just came out with hub guards for the javelins and they're supposed to be amazing. I've heard a lot about them from pros. I'm getting the front guard soon.

I understand that, but peoples input helps aswell, I just want to know what will last and feel better for me. I'm fairly tall (6'3) and as I said I like to ride with pegs, mostly street and trails.

Gross, shadow hubs are really over rated.

I thought profiles are overrated, I think they're good but over priced what do you think?

Thanks, I don't really like the remix though it needs a 52-53 mm reach.

Is the front guard out yet? And I know that Mike Hoder rides Javelin's and he does pegless grinds with them.

Okay thanks guys I'm getting profile hubs and mutiny glamroids. Still can't decide on the stem though, I'm surprised no one suggested the Colony Official.

Colony stuff is overpriced In my opinion. i have their topload stem but i got it in a trade so i didnt pay for it, its holding strong still.

Yeah that's true. Who pays $82.99 for a god damn stem!? It should be $69.99.

I'm running a Premium Sub 10 V2 currently. You should get it cause the stem bolts hold really nice. It might just be my stem, but the bolts hold onto the faceplate itself and its like the stem has threads before the bolt actually goes in. So yeah, thats 2x clamping force for you. :D

What are you talking about the stem bolts are the worst part of the stem, from what I heard and saw.

I had a Premium a little over 10 months, i have a huge problem with snapping/cracking stems i don't know why but, i do. that being said the Premium was definitely the most solid front load I've ever had and i just ordered another recently, like Friday? if you want topload get a Profile Push, i have one on my street bike right now and it's awesome, on my trail bike i ride Profile 40 that's also amazing but, doesn't feel as amazing on street as it does on the trails.

Why are you getting another one? IMO a stem should last longer than 10 months.
