also there's the spesh slaughter, sometimes I run one on the rear and it measures up to the front 2.5 non-wt minion dhf pretty well.

edit, did Schwalbe stop making the rock razors in 26?

what would be the spoke length of a 26er Spank Spoon rim with a Hope pro 4 hub? is there any way i can accurately measure it?

EDIT: I just found this website

https://www.sapim.be/spoke-calculator

Hopefully it's accurate! Smile

would like to hear more opinions though.

Thanks.

If the bearings are good then it should be fine just check the frame over carfully

well i bought a well used 2014 Undead with a small delamination close to the BB over a year ago and haven't had a problem. Although i'm a 110lb guy, but i ride as hard as i can and i don't hold back on it, i smash that bitch everywhere.

I bought Dean Lucas ex World Cup Devinci Wilson. That frame did a full season. Had no qualms about purchasing it at all.

I supposed it would have been slightly better maintained then the average punters bike Smile

after 8 years, the frame will be fatigued badly.... I wouldn't bother

My mate had a wilson and the main pivot bearing was constantly failing to the point that, as you say, mega ovalising, horrific creaking, not good.

Does anyone know why riding DH/park kills derailleurs? Myself and 2 of my friends bent our derailleurs yesterday. No crashing.
