    Hello all
    As you can see from my title I need some help figuring out a few quality parts for my Dirt Jumper.

    First off I will start by saying I have been a BMXer pretty much since I learned how to ride a bike. And I have always done all the servicing and sourcing parts myself. But now that I am older (32) I decided to get something close to a BMX just a little more comfortable to ride since this is also my daily commuter back and forth to work.

    Now before everybody laughs at me and just goes straight to that bike is a POS hear me out first.

    I have gotten myself a Full rigid Frame and forks single speed Dirt Jumper from canadian tire. The Bike it self is the Kranked Uno Jump 26" tires 15" Frame ( http://www.canadiantire.ca/en/pdp/kranked-uno-jump-26-in-urban-bike-0711616p.html#.VBuqVfldV4U ). I plan on completely stripping the bike down pretty much every part you can take off I'm going to replace. I might keep the headset since it looks very solid and it is a BMX design so it should be ok.

    OK now to the parts i need help with. I have already bought a few things just waiting for them to be delivered.

    Handle Bars- Need recommendation

    Headset- Keeping original

    Forks- Keeping original untill there effed, I heard S&M Pitchforks 26" would be a good replacement what do you guys think?

    Crank- Bought already- Race Face Chester crankset with 32T Race Face Narrow/Wide Chainring

    BB- useing the one that comes with the Crank- Could still use a pointer to a replacement after the race face one wares out. Cuz i hear there good BB's but tend to ware out kinda quick.

    Rims- Need recommendation I'v heard its best to go with ether Mavic or Alex just i'm not sure which model would best suit my need

    Hubs- Now this is where i really need help. I'm looking for preferably sealed hubs but I'm also looking for a set front and rear that doesn't have Disk mounts for disk breaks

    Pedals- Need recommendation Looking for Decent Quality Grippy Platform Pedals or something close to that.

    I know this is alot to ask But i'm completely new to the Dirt Jumping scene. I'm not sure if its just me but it seems like there alot more sizes and different parts and types when it comes to Dirt Jumpers and what not compared to BMX's. Which got me kinda lost when i was first part hunting.

    Now Keep in mind i'm not looking for top of the line crazy stuff. I'm more looking for good Quality parts that will last but not break the bank if you all know what i mean.
    So if anybody out there is willing to help me out with this task i would greatly appreciate it.
    And thanks in advance
