Reba Race on an '01 Rockhopper frame a waste?
I'm rebuilding my trusty '01 Rockhopper and, as often happens with these projects, I've ended up replacing more components than I initially thought I would. It's just more fun to work with new stuff as I rebuild.
I've ordered a Reba Race fork because reviews are generally positive, and I like its relatively light weight for the price. I've started wondering if the fork will be "too good" for the older Rockhopper frame, however. Will I end up with a decent bike, or should I consider something like the Reynolds 853 Nashbar frame? I'd like to build the Rockhopper frame with the knowledge that I can always switch to a newer frame if I break it or something. I'm basically just curious if I'll end up with something worthwhile or if I should switch to a different frame now.
Thanks for any help or advice.
