A long time ago (1994), in a far away land, I worked at a bike shop and bought a blem GT Zaskar LE frame which I built up with top end gear from that day, including the Shamano XTR group stuff, cook brother cranks, the "new" v-brakes, Judy SL front shock/fork, etc. etc. I rode it casually due to a heavy work schedule, so the stuff is not beat up.
My questions are these....
1. Is is possible to re-use/cannibalize the good gear (from 1994) on a 29 frame? (I REALLY like the disc brakes and bigger wheels).
2. Or...is it smarter to just buy a new built/complete bike?
3. Is it cost effective (versus buying a new pre-built bike)?
4. Are there any advantages in using the old gear (I heard some of the old items are tanks and might be worth using)?
Also, I'm 6'5 and weigh about 225 lbs (hence the reason I got the Zaskar frame to begin with)
Clue me in...I knew it back in the day, I don't now.
