I start off with a 2007 large Kona Coiler with a Fox Van R rear shock

Here is the parts that I got. Fox 36 Van R with 20mm throu axle, Sram chain and rear cassette, Sram X9 rear derailer, TruVative FireX 3.3 cranks with a E-Thirteen bashgaurd, TruVative 60mm stem, Kona seat post, Cane Creek S8 Headset, and some carbon spacers.

Installed headset and measure up the stearing tube for the most nerve racking cut I have ever done. That is one cut you don't want to screw up.
