Hello guys, havent been on for ages, internet is broke.
Im thinking of building a bike, and im very happy with my hardrock, but would like a trials/dirt jumper
Ive set my limit for building it at £1300, not sure how much that is in Dollars....
Can anybody give me they're advise on what they would choose for the bike?
Ive got a couple of Ideas Floating about, possibly either a Specialized p3 frame, or a craftworks Rail and for the forks, it will be one of the 3 dj's which one yet i do-not-know....
Drivetrain - I dont want a single speed, but i dont want a really expensive Drivetrain because, its gonna take a beating, so i dont want to spend too much on this, possibly looking at Deore/LX componentry, with RF cranks and BB< as for the finishing Kit, i found an RF groupset that had a Raceface Evolve Stuff in it, this included Bars, stem, headset, BB, Cranks and grips, all that was for sale for £189.99, which i dont suppose is bad.
The wheels - Im getting made by a builder up country somewhere (not sure where) and i was looking at Hope Bulb Hubs laced to Sun Singletrack rims, but im really not sure about these.
As i said, i want to keep costs down, because its gonna take me ages to save up, £1300 is alot of money to me
So i was hoping to save on the drivetrain, and use the saved money to get a better set of wheels, or possibly a better fork...
What would you guys suggest?
