I just picked up a '05 Hardrock frame and am now in the process of building it up. Obviously this frame is not going to set the world on fire and is not a "race frame" and that's fine by me.
I will be using the bike for trail & XC riding. The bike will not be used for anything aggressive or trails that are overly rough (I have my 43 lb. Versus Blitz for that). My main concerns are that the fork is relatively light and is good for climbing.
I'm a little out of my element here....(I usually do downhill type riding). The frame originally came with a 100mm fork, but would I be OK going with an 80mm fork?
As you might imagine, price is an issue here (I will most likely be buying used). Can those of you out there give me some suggestions? I should also mention that I don't care for forks made by Manitou as they have given me nothing but problems.
Thanks for your help!
