If you had to spec and build a bike as cheap as possible for a friend say, but it had to be a proper hit the trails do the job and last a decent amount of time. What would you build ?
OK it would probably be better to go to Halfords and buy a Carrera,Boardman or Voodoo, or Merlin and get a malt or the islabikes 29er, etc, but they are not the rules. We have to build it from parts.
To Start ?
Frame... Inbred (26" or 29") ?
Fork... Rigid ?
Groupset... Shimano Deore, (1 x10 ?)
finishing kit ??? Saddle charge spoon,
Everything up for discussion until a consensus is reached then we can lock in the parts for the STW (cheapo) bike
