2010 XTC FR 650b'ed!!!
Finally got the parts to convert my old XTC to 650b. Also made it into a 1x10 set up to lighten it a bit. Specs are:
Giant XTC FR small in raw finish
Fox F Series RLC set at 120 mm (I like it to have a bit more travel for a more aggressive XC hardtail ride)
Mix of XT/SLX drivetrain
E-13 the hive 36 teeth (11-36 cassette) with XCX BB chainguide.
Easton e70 Cockpit.
Taiwan (brandless) 650B rims with XT hubs and Maxxis Crossmarks 2.1
The conversion breath new life in my old frame, was going to sell the frame but after the conversion, I'm enjoying it much I'm going to keep the bike!!!
Nice work. What does it weigh?
oh no.. I guess I have a lot to learn yet... I have several bikes and haven't weighed even 1 of them... sorry bro may be when i can get a scale i will weigh it for reference... but I did enjoy the XTC a bit more, climbing was better and keeping momentum was noticeable specially in my local trails that are long and sweeping hills.
