It's amazing to me how many new bikers totally discount the concept of proper engineering before making serious modifications to the bike chassis. They will "throw" something on or "tear" something off without regard for the consequences of the changes they are talking about. Almost always, any serious owner modification of the frame or suspension will result in substantial negative changes to the handling and safety of the bike. The butchered bike is going to be worth less as a trade or resale later on as well. it's so much better to just look around for the bike you really want and go buy it.
