I currently have a Santa Cruz Heckler 26"
And looking to get a 29er.

My question is, What can I salvage from My 26er to use on the 29er?
I could get a 29er frame and fork, transfer what I can and then buy the rest.
I think I could save some money that way....

I know that wheels and fork will need to be different, But what about
Shifters? Brake calipers? Levers? Handlebar?

Not sure about crankset either? WIth 29" wheels would I need different crankset with more or less teeth?

Thanks to anyone who can offer some advice.

The reason I am thinking of doing this is to save cost.
I have some great components on my santa cruz, xo shifters, Formula the one brakes,
and dont want them to just get left behind.
If I get new components on my 29er, they willl have to be significantly lower grade than what I have.
and plus I have only had the bike for a year and a half....

It should all work, you might just need longer cables because of the longer 29er chain stays. Just make sure you bb is compatible. Learned that the hard way!
