i had a stock built on one 456 evo 2 the back end of 2013 built to their spec and have been doing my normal trail riding on it.
i have recently been asked to have a crack and get into downhilling, now apart from the "go get a downhill bike" what can i do to the 456 to tinker it more toward downhill than trail riding?
im pretty new to all things mtb so forgive the ignorance,
do i need to consider tyre choice, handlebar width, etc etc
appreciate the input
