    We the people ... Hardtail to Full Suspension by switching frames.

    Hello there. I have a norco storm 6.2 that is a cross country bike, but looking to switch into a full suspension. I was just wondering could I buy a new frame that has back suspension, and switched it over to my hardtail, would it work? Thanks.

    As long as all the components fit. The biggest differences between the frames would be bottom bracket size, head tube length/taper and possibly rear dropout spacing. But other than that, should be straightforward.
