So i'm looking into a 2009 felt compulsion 1. i got a sick deal on one with local pick up so its all good there. I only have one issue..
This will be used and abused a lot. i will use it as an AM and FR bike. i'm looking for an All mountain bike that can get me into Slopestyle, and seeing that zink rode this bike, i should have no problems right?
I will run a 1/4 inch shorter rear shock, which should slacken out the head angle and lower the bottom bracket a little. I'll run a short stem and the such... The real question is, Is this a good idea?
I have done hours of research. zink rode one compulsion frame his 09 season. After viewing multiple videos i saw him take sonme hard falls, and do some massive drops (to sloped) and the bike never broke. I have spoken with zink a little about it and he said "you will break something else on the bike before you break the frame..."
The frame i am looking at is brand new, and the deal is unbeatable. I will ride trails like livewire at N*, and hit the jump park. I will also pedal the bike around the 'hood a little bit and maybe ride a TINY amount of Xc like the Flume trail.
Yes or No as the compulsion on a jump bike?
this is the same basic build that i will have...
