    building new bike ideas!!

    Im gona buy a new frame.

    Im gona use my existing components.

    My drivetrain is 2 years old so would you recommend replacing anything if it all fits on the new frame?
    Fork is new so that is good.

    What other components would you recommend to replace or upgrade for a new frame.
    Anything mandatory or is my existing components ok?

    Thank you!

    new frame build

    Just got done building my new Titus Switchblade around my old parts (various age b/t 4.5 yrs and just 1st of last season). I'd go w/ new cables and possibly headset, dpending on how much and where you ride. Easier to replace 'em while you have everything apart, plus it's nice to have a new frame and everything else working like new. I had to replace my bb and seatpost b/c of compatibility issues, but everything else fit the new frame. And you might have to replace your ft. der, dpending on what frame you pick. My ft. and rr. der. are both about 4 seasons old and starting to get a bit sloppy, but will have to wait...
    What frames are you looking at?
