Giant XTC 9,500? I built a bike around a 2012 Giant XTC frame w/ SLX group set & 2011 Epicon fork for around 50k. Kung XT group set & Fox or RS fork baka 60k pataas yan.

XTC frame at 9.5K is a great price already. Make sure it's original and at least 2011 model. I think 2013 SLX at 18.5K is a great match for the frame. Shimano XT components is slight overkill for an XTC frame. Focus the rest of your money on a good set of wheels and possibly a carbon handlebar/seat post. Epicon fork is all you need. Rock shox coil is heavy and reba or sid will throw you way off budget. In the end you'll definitely have one great ride.

Perfect advice given by sir sleepydog.. Tried and tested na ung XTC.. Budget friendly naman ang KHS Alites.. Well you can't go wrong sa advice nya.

Sobrang bigat Yukon compared to XTC. Although at around 40K bang for the buck entry level FS kung hindi ka particular sa parts.

@Mak mak, try size 17
yukon FX lowest price na nakita ko is 32k, but since gusto nyo ng xt I think madidisappoint kayo sa Yukon FX since entry level lang sya

besides not everyone needs an FS bike
