Rebuilding an old 26er vs purchasing a new 29er
I take it everyone must be fed up with 26 vs 29 questions, and I am terribly sorry if I upset anyone with this!
I have an old-ish Scott Voltage (2007) 26'' wheel bike with a rigid Mosso fork up front which I love immensely, and I've been pondering a change of all its components minus the frame, fork, and stuff like stem and seat post to give new life to the bike and have it as a dedicated XC vehicle.
Trouble is, the amount of money I'm about to throw at the Scott is equal to half the price of a new 29er. Would it still be a good investment to revitalize the 26er, if I'm ever to consider entering a local XC event?
