    Stinky TL all-mountain bike?

    The frame is slack but the seat tube angle is semi-steep. Any thoughts on this frame with a light build for an every day trail bike?

    It can be done, of course, you just need to be aware of the fact the frame is not exactly light which will make it a bit harder to build up a light bike.
    The other thing worth considering: is it worth it?If you have a lot of the parts already at home, then by all means go for it.But if you plan to buy most or all of the components, it might be a good idea to check if you can find a capable complete bike for the same amount of money.

    I asked God for a bike, but I know God doesn't work that way. So I stole a bike and asked for forgiveness.

    besides, lightening a Stinky defeats it's primary purpose...

    I don't know, but how much an stock Stinky weighs?

    I ride a Coiler as my "every day / every way" bike, and @36 lb, is quite pedalable.
