    Another frame I got for cheap. Guy came into the shop and once he was told how much it would take to repair it(brakes needed bleeding, all the cables were corroded, shifters needed some help, and the fork needed to be rebuilt). He told us it was just a guest bike and didn't get ridden much and he'd rather just buy a new bike. Our head mechanic offered to buy it from him. He then told me I could have the frame and cockpit if I stripped it for him. I took it home and did it that night.

    I'm going to get a rigid fork for this one too, and will probably make it an urban cruiser like the giant too.

    Picked up a for for this today. It's a 80mm suspension corrected 29er fork which is almost a dead on replacement for a 90mm suspension 26er fork.

    (not my photato, took it from the ad)
    I have at least a dozen 26" forks for anyone looking to do fun projects. Assortment of colors, steerer length and quality. All have standard canti studs and clean threading, /dropouts.
    So does the correction put you in the same trail etc, w/o the weight of a suspension fork?

    The difference in size is very miniscule and I can only imagine it weighs a lot less (don't have the original fork)

    Forgot, I sold this for some PBR.

    Not really, but I did sell it. Moved the fork to the Giant Talon I am building up for my roommate.
    Sounds similar to my transactions.
