    ... and if we just ... Want to convert '89 Giant Boulder

    I've just purchased a new 04 Stumpjumper Exper Disk for racing and I would like to convert my '89 Giant Boulder into a ss. The bike has been ridden hard each of it's 15 years and just won't quit. I raced it last year, including 24HOA and other epic style rides. It's got no suspension so I figure why should it have any gearing It still has all original parts (Biopace oval crank and Mountain LX components) but I've stripped it down to just the frame and I'm looking to build it up.

    I'm looking for some good web sources to walk me through the conversion process and things I should be considering. I would like to get it done, start riding it and maybe even ride it in a race or two in this years GAP series in Georgia .
