    Q for hobgoblin frameset

    I have a guardian.

    Upgraded x9 FD(still tuning it for clearance from rear tire)

    Upgraded FD cable to Jagwire Mountain Pro Shift orange.(original cable housing broken. dont ask me why...)

    Afer some trail riding, I'm thinking about buying a hobgoblin frameset.

    If I transfer, All my components from guardian fit to hobgoblin frameset?

    I will deff buy new fork, might change to 2X9, and willing to pay some components If I need to.

    Honestly, I can not take my eyes off from sexy orange hobgoblin.

    Hey Mark,

    Here's what you would need to buy (things that won't swap over) :

    A Tapered fork (or you could by a headset reducer to adapt your current fork)
    New Cranks with BB92/PressfitGXP bottom bracket
    High Direct Mount FD

    Due to cable routing differences, you may need a longer rear brake line.

    Hope that helps!
