Looking for some advice on whether or not i should switch out my SL-R for a HD.
So i've had my SL-R for 3 weeks or so and have been really enjoying it. It's my one bike for everything; i live in a 400 sq ft studio so don't have room for a quiver!
However change is a foot - i'm going to be moving up to Vancouver (from Seattle) later this summer. When i got the SL-R i was on the fence between it and the HD, but now i'm thinking that i want the added versitility of the HD. I like being able to switch out the fork, the burlier frame would work better up at Whistler, and the slacker angles are more descent oriented.
I've thought about getting a second bike, but i can't really justify it given i just got the SLR. Also, I think there's something to be said for having one bike that you can do everything on, and know really well.
So my questions:
- Could i just switch out my XT build kit onto a HD frame? I know the HD doesn't have a direct mount front derailleur so i'd need to switch that up. Any other issues - with the 2x10 setup maybe?
- Are the HD 140 and 160 frames identical bar the rear shock mounts?
- How much would be reasonable to sell my sl-r frame for? Large in nearly new condition, with Fox float 32 140. Or should i just list the whole bike and start over...
Or, am i being ridiculous and should i just stick with the SL-R and stop second guessing myself?
