6'4" 280ish lbs. Just getting into the sport. I have a Talus Sport 29er that I like and have started upgrading parts.
A build a dual purpose bike with a set street tires and a set of mtb tires.
Street so I can use it for commuting, exercise and riding to have fun like I when I was younger.
MTB for a spare/26" alternative.
Bits and pieces thus far:
Kona Kula frame
Sun Ringle Rhyno Lite Disc Wheelset
Dart1 or Psylo fork (I need to rebuild the Psylo I am told)
I would like to keep it a 1x9/10 or 2x9/10 for simplicity. Most of my riding is in the middle ring on the Talus. I spin on tough climbs so I do use the granny a bit. That said as a dual purpose, the large chain ring would be helpful on the streets.
Any advice, experience on a build like this would be appreciated.
