Okay, so I have a dilemna. I have a 2007 Kona Coiler, pretty much dialed down away from the XC towards the freeridish category. 55's, code 5's, e.13, easton dh bars, hussefelt stem, blah blah.. Remaining stock parts are the wheels and drivetrain. I am looking to get a bigger bike, size-wise and ride-wise. A little more downhill and bigger hit friendly but can still pedal up a fireroad. But not too big. Something with 7" of travel would be ideal.
Now the question.
Should I sell my current bike, and buy a complete new ride? I was thinking lately that I could part out with the frame and fork only, as the rest of my parts I would be happy with on a larger bike. Checking out the Santa Cruz Bullit and that looked perfect, as long as it isnt too tough on the ol' wallet.
I honestly do not have a lot of bike buying experience and I was wondering what some opinions were.
So, fresh slate or just an update?
