    putting old components on a new frame

    i have a trek 930 and i was wanting to put all the components on a smaller suspension frame (its a 19" C-B and i really need a 17") and was wondering if i would run into any compatibility problems

    if you need any specs off the trek let me know and ill take pics and look up all the measurements

    this is the frame that i was looking at

    Funny.. my 2005 Jamis Dakar XC Pro is built with a bunch of old parts from my 1993-1997 Specialized Stumpjumper (date spread because i upgraded a lot of components).

    Most things will work. The BB body and spindle length may have to change, as could the seatpost diameter. Front derailleur may or may not work depending on cable routing and seat tube diameter.

    Yes... if you already have all the tools, can do the work yourself, and aren't vain about the parts on your bike (serviceable no-name brand parts and/or mid-range Shimano bits will save you a ton of money, but nobody will drool over them for you).

    All my bike projects have run over budget though.. usually for tools, unforseen expenses on little stuff like new cables etc, and because i'm silly and tend to not want generic black painted Nashbar brand parts etc.
