    Will this work?

    I have a 2012 Trek Wahoo 29er mtb. I want to transfer all the components on my Trek to a a_baygoods chinese carbon frame (fr202). Here is the link Fr 202 29er Full Carbon Matt MTB Mountain Bike Frame BSA 17 5" Headset | eBay. I am most concerned about the BB. Will the components such as the cranks fit this frame?

    Seatpost (27.2 mm on the Wahoo, 31.6 mm on the aftermarket Carbon) and fork (1.125" vs. tapered 1.125"-1.5") are not compatible.

    Couldn't determine the rear wheel spacing from the Trek archive listing, but I'd imagine it'd probably fit.

    Honestly, though, my advice would be the ride the Wahoo until you've saved up for something else.

    I'm looking for a cheap frame, preferably in carbon. Do you have any suggestions?

    Not to put too fine a point on it, but you've already got a cheap frame--the one that came with your 2012 Trek Wahoo.
