The new guy at work offered to sell me his used 2001 P3 frame that he has lying around, he got it off a friend a couple years ago, intending to build it up, but never did. I was thinking of swapping the parts off my trek onto the P3... Thing is 90% of what I do is XC so I'm a little reserved about it because, from what I know the P3 wasn't really designed for XC... Is the Geometry of the P3 frame acceptable for XC use?
I always drooled over the Flat black P3's...
Parts that would be swapped onto the frame
Marzocchi MX Comp ETA fork
Rhynolites w/XT hubs
Bontrager Headset and crowbar bars
Thomson Elite Post
Stock Shimano cranks from 2003 Trek 4500(not sure which one)
Everything else is XT and Sram
Would this be a decent XC setup, or should I just keep everything on my 2003 Trek 4500 frame?
Your opinions please... Thanks!
