- What should I build this up with?
If i could have been ar sed to get the bike stand out then i would have.Posted 9 years ago
Thinking a little 4X/jumpy machiney thing really.
Its a good few years old urrr… 5 maybe 6? so im thinking its only going to want 100mm ish rather than silly travel.
Might have to gear it as its on vertical drop outs and i’ve had some nasty singlator experiences!!pauleMember
I’d go for u-turn pikes up front – seem to remeber that .243 did 2 versions of those frames, one for short and one for long travel so the U-turn would mean it would be OK whichever one you have.
Wheel wise, something with 521 rims (or whatever they’re called now) or sun singletracks. A single 36t ring up front with some kind of chain device – truvativ box guides are good on a budget, E13 if you’re flush. Short cage rear mech. Stick a set of fairly wide OS bars and a shortish stem to match up front with a set of lock-on grips. Brakes are quite a personal issue, but I’m very happy with Shimano LXs on a similar speced bike… very cheap too…Posted 9 years ago
