    Spot - new to me build

    Long time forum member, haven't posted in years though!

    Been riding the same Karate Monkey going on 10 years now, hard to believe the bikes still going strong. Decided I wanted another bike to ride. I use to have a 26" Spot and have always missed that bike. Got lucky and found an older 29r Spot Frame to build up.

    Love the geometry and feel of the older Spot's. Light, fast fun.

    I usually ride rigid but got a great deal on the RockShox so giving it a try.

    Have fun, Scott

    I have a soft spot for....Spots. I think you need to swap it out for a proper rigid fork and 29x3" tire up front.

    Stremf, I do want to go back rigid, miss it already. Not sure I need a 3.0, but maybe a nice 2.4 tubeless will do.

    Thanks, glad people like the build, it rides very nice.
