Ok so I've posted quite a few times and not got many results so here goes nothing, please ask any questions or help.

I had this bike stolen in March.[url]https://m.pinkbike.com/photo/16914322/
[/url]
It was the best bike I've ever rode and am now trying to build a similar ride. I felt like I could do anything and so confident.

Parts of the above pic:
14inch Orange Msisle
24inch halo wheels qr drop out
Sunstor forks
Cane creek 1/8th headset
Acor handle bars
Acor stem
Deity 2009 vendetta cranks
Hope mini M3 rear break

Ok so I now have a 16inch frame
A set of halo 24inch wheels


I have around 200 a month to spend and am looking to buy parts. I have seen the deity termite crank on sale?

Can anyone recommend parts for me?

Anyone know the sizes for the Msisle? Orange where not that helpful saying the bike predated there catalog.

Ok so I know my post isn't written greatly. I have dyslexia so please ask me to clarify.

Starting from top to bottom as I've a lot of questions.


Handle bars:Alloy MTB Mountain Bike handlebar Handlebars Black White 680mm 25.4mm / 31.8mm
Condition:New
Stem(Acor rise and size unknown)

Understanding
I know that the rise and length of handle bar can effect the handling. I know the shorter the stem = better steering?

Q. What size do I require for my Msisle.


Headset Cane Creek A Head 1/8th

Q.is this what I need? What are the correct sizes I need to buy?

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/CANE-CREEK-R ... 1976718184

Breaks
Hope mini M3 rear break

Q. when replacing breaks will I need specific rotor s to?

forks (I have a set)

Wheels (I have a set of halo SOS qr drop out)

CRANKS
Deity vendetta 2009

I can not find anywhere. I know my BB is 170? Tapered? I'm wanting to get the same and create a single speed bike.

Q. I've seen a deity termite 28t?

I'm totally stuck at this point and need help finding cranks BB and understand of size/fit for my bike.

I hope this helps.

I'd imagine 170 refers to the crank arm length rather than the bb

Ok, yeah I now now the fit is 173mm tapard BB. I have a Shimano BB already. If I was to buy a deity termite 28t what else would I need to fit and set up the bike single speed?

With the brakes it’s either mono M4 or mono mini. M4 will have 4 pistons (2 gold piston caps) and the mini will have 2 pistons (1 gold piston cap) the 3 probably refers to the IS calliper number. Different numbers (3,5 & 8 are most common) relate to different size rotors. No 3 is 180mm front & 160mm rear. Below is a pic of a No3 mono M4

The calliper number is marked on the back by the one bolt hole if you look closely below.

Hope that helps.


Also the headset eBay link is for a 1” (1inch) you will need to check this on you frame. I’m not familiar with your frame but I’d be surprised if it was 1”. It’s more likely to be 1-1/8”. Something like this

https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre ... 3002628330

should be ok. But please check your frame first. It should basically measure 34mm inside the head tube. If you are unsure look here.

Ok the most accurate way is to remove the rotor from the hub (undo the 6 bolts, just be careful and look closely as they may be hex not Allen key) and measure across the middle of it with a rule or tape measure. Depending on what size they are will dictate weather you can use them with the mono mini calliper or not.
