There's actually a P.All Mountain this year that's pretty much set up that way.
+1. Thats the set up I had on my kona scrap. I also had the pike which had lock out and travel adjust. Hell, it WAS a xc bike when I wanted it to be
. That being said, I don't miss it at all. Do the cheap and effective solution. Worst case scenario, you are out a few bucks and can go and get the bike like you origonally planned.
One word of advice, if you get a dual ring guide, get a black spire stinger. I have owned a drs, and it still occasionaly droped the chain. The drs was $30, lighter, lower profile, and in 2 years on a downhill/freeride and a dirt jump bike, I have NEVER droped a chain. It was the best $30 I've ever spent in my life.
