I’ve decided that I can’t be bothered doing a semi conversion of my trail bike for park bike duties over summer so thought about building something up I can use. I can get a brand new Commencal Furious frame and shock for about 500 quid, use my existing wheels and seatpost. I’d like forks, brakes and drivetrain to come in under 500 quid too and I’d like new if possible. Any suggestions, I’m aware it might be a bit of a stretch.
Old Intense slopestyle can take 135mm wheels, not sure about cranks. I think Rocky Mountain Slayer SSs as well. Or Patriots (but not Bloods) and 224 Evos (but not others). Demo might have a wacky wheel offset?
I should like to take this opportunity to mention that I thought my SX Trail was pish. Though might be a better park bike for jumping etc, that was all it could do well.
