That'd prolly be the easiest - a decent hardtail and the Glendale as a Frankenbike...
Now THAT could work. But I dunno, I'm not that rough with my Glendale. How well do you think the aluminum that they make these days holds up? Are we talkin' T-6, something aircraft-grade? I've seen some cheap aluminum bikes take some hard knocks, and that pretty much spelled the end for them. Steel bends, to a point. Aluminum likes to crack. I'm not totally knocking aluminum, just a bit concerned about it.
