Half-bikes are my procrasination measure too!. I finally broke down and had the guys at Poisen Spider do a whole new upscale drive train for me! I love the Rocky Mt. FSR frame and the way it handles. The pivots are in the perfect spot for me and this bike is lighter than most FSR frames. 2oo bucks bought me an essentially new bike! Whoa!
My 3rd lame HT Schwinn Moab, used-to-be-a-bike, may ultimately end up as my home-work-home commuter as I replace it with disintegrating parts from my Stumpjumper '05 Ht and my RM Carve. At least that is the plan for now. (Here, I can relate to your saga). I'll use Shwinn's the extra wheels in the race if need be.
I had no idea I'd get into this bike building, riding, racing thing like I have..it's become an obsession which is a good (healing) replacement behavior for me. I'm busy!! No time to think sad thoughts. For me that's a good thing right now.
