Just tore the Parker down to the bare frame/shock/headset.
Fox Float shock
Stock FSA Headset
About a pound heavier than I had anticipated.
I tried building the Parker into a general trail bike, but the seat tube is just too short and the thing is a bit heavy to be pedaling uphill all day...so I put the Komodo back together.
I'm kind of at a weird place. I don't really do any urban or FR anymore. Just trail riding. I'm really either wanting a 29'er HT, OnOne 456Carbon, or lighter 26" dually frame. I've been riding my 1998 Komodo lately as a SS at 22.75# and really spoiled at how much more energy I have with it. The rougher terrain is a bit of a chore, but it's worth it for how well it climbs.
Anyhoo. The Parker frame is on the bay now. Will try to unload the heavy Domain and Strokers as well. The wheelset is surprisingly not that heavy.
