so the thought occurred to me that i have a perfectly good hardtail sitting there 07 GT avalanche expert(only thing i've changed is the rear wheel on it) spec - http://www.dalescycles.com/ProductDe...ductCode=14542, and i wonder if it would be possible to just buy a full sus frame for maybe say around £400-£500 then transfer the remainder of the parts over? thus me ending up with a full susser, and probably just rebuild the HT back up over time... so would you think,
1. would be worth doing?
2. would i run in to and compatibility problems?
3. if 1. and 2 aren't much of a problem, whats a good frame for around £400-500 quid? looking for something that will handle the likes of the 7 stanes red and black routes (bit of the red - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PvGvXJT05x8 ), i'm only doing the reds just now, idea is to progress onto the more difficult stuff at some pint in the future, i'm not mad into jumps but will do some of the smaller ones...
cheers for any suggestions/input.
