So I went and did this today. Ive been wanting to get a linkage bike but the high cost of new bikes and my lack of trust of people I don't know selling used, i somehow located a leftover 2018 300xc for a good good price. Nice thing is most of the stuff on my xcw will go right over. Im excited to ride this but need to do a few things before it hits the trail. Then once this bike is setup, I'm going to have to sell my xcw to recoup the cost of the new bike. It pains me to do it since it's totally setup but if I want to stay married, it's gotta go. Doesn't look like my damper will transfer over but most other stuff will it seems. Looking forward to the build and riding the xc.
