    Flightline into a DJ/Urban bike?

    Well, newb question, but is it possible? I know I'm planning on converting it into a 1x10 (it's a 2010 Flightline 2 btw), I already have a better fork, It's just will the frame hold up? It's taken some good abuse already, and if not i'll just use it as a stunt bike and go buy a 29'er . Thanks in advance!

    120lbs and I'm learning as I go, shouldn't take me too long to learn the basics though.

    You'll be fine might want to add upgrades like disc brakes and such as your skills grow.

    My son used to race DH on his HT and did alot of DJ with it as well,

    Yeah, every season i'll be doing upgrades, brakes, driveline, wheels/tires, etc etc. i woulda never though of using an ht for dowhwill, i would assume it grants more traction at the rear wheel though. thanks for the info tho!

    DH'ing a HT makes one into a smoother rider. Once you learn the skill of riding a HT DH you'll rip it on a FS.
