i agree...LOL everything thats going into it is industry standard... english BB (via a conversion set) threadless stem and headset (i would need a different headset for a different frame...big woop at $35) fork would cross over with correct headset, all shifters and such will swap right over along with derailleurs.... i think gummee is just jealous of my awesome vinyls on the bike and doesnt want that much awesomeness out in the world....LOL
and i dont think this is really the hard way....its just not the NORMAL way....its not any harder or easier...shoot i had a HARD time finding a decent shock for my trek fuel....NO ONE has 6.5" eye to eye shocks for sale used that arent fubared...went thru 3 bad ones before finding the one thats on it now...
