I have a made in US Silk Trail 400 complete bike that I am thinking about converting to a dirt specific rig. Has anyone done this?
I'm talking new, crank / chainrings, front derraileur, flatter stem and bar, tires.
I thought about just buying a dirt rig and leaving my ST as is, but with my household down to just one income..it's not financially feasible to drop bigger coin on a dirt rig.
I am not planning to race this bike ..just hit some local singletrack and possibly the kettles.
There looks to be plenty of clearance for 1.95 - 2.1 knobbies and the bike is equipped with double walled rims and decent shimano hubs. I don't ride in alot of muck-so the rim binders will be sufficient.
What do you C'dale guys and gals think here? Could this bike be a decent dirt rig?
