    So the first thing I want to change up is the whole drivetrain. I would like to go either 1x9 or 1x10. Which ever is the best option price wise. Changing out the drivetrain will force me to get a new wheelset. I am thinking of going to a Stans 24" 24 spoke setup. I need hub choices. Also will be going to trigger shifters. After the wheels and drivetrain, the only other component would be to go with a decent hydraulic disc brake setup. I am currently searching everywhere for a used Rock Shox SID 26" fork (older model).
    Stem, seatpost, and handlebars will be an easy swap.
    With the drivetrain swap, I am going to need shorter crankarms, so that is an issue. Also it has a square taper BB, can that be changed out to something more compatible with whats out there for sale?
    I am guessing I should stay away from a long cage RD?
