Skint's Switchback

Postby VERT on Fri 17/Apr/09 2:04pm

I got to a point where I wanted to build up a bike, and the Switchback was a good, cheap frame. The plan was initially to build it up with full XT (solid workhorse stuff), then swap out the frame for a full-sus trail bike once I'd sold my existing ride. Got as far as assembling all the parts, ordering online and spending far too much time in bike shops piecing it all together. Once I'd given it a good flogging decided it was just too nice to ride to cannibalise. Ended up riding it exclusively for a couple of years, then selling it complete. In that time it did everything - South Island helidrops to jungle epics xc races to commuter bike. Pretty much everything you could ask for in a classic steel hardtail.
