    Old Fargo or New Fargo?

    I bought an old style FG Green frame this week but have some buyers remorse. I could buy a new complete for less than I will pay to spec the frame. There is also an XT complete online I could buy for $1800. Did I make a mistake? Would I rather have the new model and sell the frame?

    Probably depends on if you want to use a suspension fork or not. I didn't, so I went with the 2010 model.

    There's a BB height difference and a chainstay length difference that makes the old model slightly more stable but slightly less flickable as well, correct?

    Or..... you could set up the frame you bought as a ss drop bar 29er and then buy the complete bike and have two fargos. I bought the xt, fun guy green fargo and loved it so much I decided to buy another frame and make it a dedicated ss drop bar mountain bike. I love these bikes more than any other bikes I have. :
