Converting my Trek 7300fx into a mountain bike?
Hi guys, having purchased a nice fast road bike I had decided to sell my trusty 7300fx hybrid until it occured to me that I could potentially convert it into a mountain bike. Am I mad or is this a possibility?
I don't currently own a mountain bike but definately want one. How will the geometry of this frame handle the smaller wheelset used by mountain bikes - I believe the frame is moulded for 700cs - or can I just keep 700c for mountain riding?
Further, what steps and components would I need to undertake if this conversion was even possible?
Many thanks in advance
