    Frame Switch

    I just scored a heavily upgraded Jamis Dragon Pro for 500 beans, and i was thinking of switching out the jamis frame for a 2003 s-works enduro. I was wondering if the combination of an all-mountain frame and x-country fork (f80 rl) would mess up the geometry or something.

    Thanks

    They did sell an Enduro model that year with a 100mm fork, but I'm still not sure 80mm would feel very good. It will steepen the frame angles and quicken the steering. The head angle will probably end up closer to 72deg, which is definitely not "all mountain" anymore
