My first post...not sure it this is the place for this question, but...
I recently purchased a brand new bike and was previously riding a Giant NRS 2 for 5 years. I don't want to get rid of this bike, but I know I won't ride it anymore. So, I was thinking that I wanted to try my hand at a few dual slalom races next season just for fun.
My question is regarding the proper set up. Before buying my new bike I had a series of fortunate events that allowed me to replace the 3" travel crappy Skarab that came with the bike with a brand new100 mm travel Manitou Minute...for free. So, I think that fork is ok for what I'm looking to do with the bike. I also know that the SID shock is pretty much hosed and needs to be replaced.
The stem will be replaced to a much shorter one, chain guide and maybe handle bars. My question is...can or better yet, should this bike be used for Dual Slalom? or am I just dreaming and trying to relive my BMX days of the 80's?
Thanks in advance for any input.
