I’m planning to replace my main trail bike over the winter, and looking to find a frame to make use of the good parts to create a DJ/Park bike for the new indoor bike park being built here in Ottawa.
My terms are these (to save hassles in converting existing parts, or hunting for others).
26″ wheels, clearance for 2.35″ tires.
135x9mm QR rear hub. I have DT Swiss hubs, so I COULD convert for the right reasons.
Derailleur hanger (The indoor park is close, but I’d like gears to get there faster).
1 1/8 steertube compatible, with geometry for a 120mm fork.
Open to new and used. The NS Bikes Clash looks like an ideal new solution, but not sure what else is out there. I don’t want to drop big money on this, as it’s really just meant to be a fun play bike, with any big money set aside for a new mountain bike (What bike exactly? That’s a whole other thread).
