    which bike to strip

    i am looking into buying a used Giant Rincon and making it into a SS to save some money. is this a good bike to do this to? If not what bike should i look for? i am looking for something that can handle trails, thats it. i have a street bike already. At the same time i am not looking to drop a lot of money into my first SS. I want to make sure i like it before i spend too much.

    Any frame can be converted, but the Rincon seems like a fairly low end frame for serious off road. What parts does it have?
