Call me crazy but I really want a new bike already. I bought a C'Dale F800 in May and I'm already looking to get a FS. On the trails I'm seeing lots of people with FS bikes and how much fun they are having with them. I reaaaly want one.
So this is my plan. I want to get a Santa Cruz Heckler with 5th Element shock and maybe Maverick Fork. Then I'd take my C'dale appart and put all of it's componients on the SC. This way I'd only have to buy a front wheel, BB, head set, and stem. Then overtime, I'd slowly rebuild my C'dale to make it a sub 23 lb XC bike. Does this sound like a good plan or am I just suffering from Rear shock envy? But a SC Heckler for under $2500 CAN sounds pretty tempting!
