Anyone know the exact length spacer I need for my bb? 09 cap. Just got some profiles and the kid that had the bike before only put the long spacer in which isn't long enough on its own

the trube space should something like 48-55mm

this bike is costing you a boooomb,

I couldn't ride a 26. then half the city's sports would be super low and almost unrideable. The ledges at the local park are only just high enough for 24 as well.

ok. ill price up a build and see. i have a fork laying around that i could use, a front hub, maybe a stem, have a tax return coming in thats quite substantial so thatll help. for tyres its like im spoiled for choice coming from a 26", i can EP odyssey, maybe tioga, so ill probably go with an aitken p-lyte. might go for odyssey rims too, theyre heavy but strong so i dont mind them.

right now its just an idea but id be able to put together a solid build for not much money.
