- Just bought a frame
Under 30lbs shouldn’t be too much of a chore… 130mm forks will work well with that frame too (assuming it’s a fairly recent one?), broadens the options a bit.
Forks: Probably Rebas, Sektors or Revs. Don’t rule out old Revs, they’re light and still perform well and can be very cheap
Wheels: Just seek out something sensible, don’t tie yourself down to particular models.
Everything else: Maybe just go direct to a Deore groupset for £275?
TBH if I had £600 to buy a Fury, I’d probably just buy a Fury!Posted 4 years ago
It’s a 2010 one the white one. I bought it as my Current Carrera Vulcans a heavy beast and I think too big (20 inch)I’m 5ft 10 and been using a 18 inch Cannodale and tried a 18 inch fury which felt nice. But instead of swapping heavy bits from my Vulcan I wanna build it up fairly light. Budget isn’t strict as I’m gonna take my time. 130mm forks would be nice. Maybe do a 1 x 10 setup.
Will mainly be a xc and trail centre bike.Posted 4 years agotakisawa2Subscriber
120mm Rebas. Older 130mm dual NON U-TURN air Revs are like rocking hoss fecis, probably because they are bloody ace. One of the best forks RS have done IMO.
New Deore groupset or pick up nearly new kit off here.
Wheels, some bargain Pro2 sets out there, now these fangled bigger sizes are popularis.
I’ve a pair of 2.25 EVO Nobby Nics if your after tyres, both little used.
For that budget you should be able to put together a very decent bike indeed.Posted 4 years agoDufferMember
Also if I use a deore Groupset what weight should I expect from the bike?
Deore is good quality kit – fit and forget for the most part. A little heavy perhaps, but who cares?
As for wheels, Hope are ace, but a little expensive. I have used Mavic Crossrides for years with no problems – £180 on CRC.Posted 4 years ago
