Question for y’all, I know it’s personal preference. But would you get a SC Jackal or a Chromag Monk if these were your only choices ? I’m currently riding an older transition TOP size long, and looking to build a new bike.

Santa Cruz has a better track record of not cracking headtubes and has a better warranty. I'd love a V1 Jackal, such a beautiful frame.

Although I prefer a steel frame, in this case I think I would agree with this.

Chromag is pretty deadly to deal with though, it took awhile for me to get a replacement monk but my Warranty on my 2016 was expired by 7 months. And they still upgraded me to a 2020 frame for free.

Another wheel question. Why are 90% of wheels 32h these days? Like I just got a halo chaos wheel set with supadrive hub and I keep having to tighten the spokes due to slight buckles. But they don't even offer a 36h? For a dirt jump specific wheel I think that's crazy. I think 36h would give it that slight bit more solidity.

Then you see Matt Jones and Sam Pilgrim riding the same wheels and it's like how do you not fold them in half?

28h is strong enough for DH riders in many cases, so I'd question why 36h is needed.

The spokes may not have been properly stressed and tensioned by the manufacturer.

The Title stuff looks good, not sure when it's due to sell?

has anyone tried a profile elite hub? is it good, there's one for sale locally for $400 as a full wheel, is it a good deal?

I don't have any personal experience with them, but they usually retail for $400+ for the hub alone. They also might be one of the loudest hubs out there (if you're into that kind of thing). I'd love a set for my dj and for my trail bike.

Been riding mountain bikes awhile, but this is my first dirt jumper, that I just built. I kind of splurged on some components... Identiti Dr Jekyl frame, Industry Nine wheels, Next R cranks, Fox...

I don't have a proper scale, but on a [definitely not very accurate] bathroom scale it's 23 lbs with 50psi and 60ml (each) sealant in the tubeless tires.
