Default Re: Upgrade: Fork or Frame

Frame if you only need to replace is the frame and maybe the seatpost also due to sizing compatibility. Your frame is indeed entry-level, while your epicon is not an entry level, imho. The question is which frame are you eyeing? Compare the cost of epicon to sid with that of the marin frame to what?

im targeting a Giant XTC/Trek 8500/2010 Marin IFT as my next frame. These frames cost almost the same, if not more than that of the RS SID Fork.... that's why it gets really confusing.

Imho save up for a fs built bike mas mura kesa aassemble. Tapos gawin mo na lang pure xc yung current bike mo super gaan na niyan kapag nagpalit ka ng carbon cockpit tapos lightweight wheelset.

Suggestion, get the XTC frame first, which would cost you not more than P6K if you can sell your present frame, lesser if you can get a pre-owned frame. Check if the ride still needs an upgrade of your fork as one can see many XTCs with epicon forks.

Or Better yet, get a 29er with your money
