I am trying to keep costs to an absolute minimum so the more I can swap the better! Also, if anyone wants to help with an additional question - what 140mm fork deals are there out there?

I would really like to have 15mm or 20mm axle.. so this would be cause for additional parts. Based on that info, what all would I NEED in order to complete the swap?

everything should swap over. You could bump the Reba up to 120mm and spend almost nothing except for some shock oil, shifter cable housing and BB spacers. The 2X drivetrain will take a little time to get setup.

MakinMoves - Glad you are stoked on the Yelli!

Looking at your list you will need:
30.9 Seatpost
35.0 Seatpost Clamp
I can tell if your Front Derailleur is a direct mount, Sram HO series or not. If not, you will need one.
Confirm that your current wheel is a 135x10 QR.

That should be about it to get you rolling. Feel free to give us a call with any other build questions.

Cheers!

Thanks for the reply!! I definitely will!

I saw that manitou for $250 a couple days ago too! Went back and forth on it.. May have to revisit!

I have the Tower Pro 120mm 15qr on my Yelli and I love it. That being said, I picked up the 140 as well. Haven't made the switch yet, hopefully this weekend.
