    Going from a goblin frame to hobgoblin?

    Would this be relatively easy to do? Was wondering for future reference. I know some of the components look very similar, but would love to go full suspension one day (especially if my back keeps acting up).

    Thanks!

    If it's a current Goblin (black) with the tapered HT/Fork, then you don't need too much in the way of new parts. You'll need a High Direct Mount FD, and a PressFit GXP BB (also known as BB92 in the Shimano world). Everything else will swap over.

    The one caveat is that you *may* need a longer rear shift cable and housing, and you *may* need a longer rear hydro brake cable, as the routing is different for those compared to the Goblin and it takes longer cables/housing in comparison.

    Hope that helps!
