    '03 BigHit Expert Chainstay - Swap for an '08?

    Hey guys, Question: I have an '03 BigHit with the 24" rear wheel and chainstays that only accept the 24" wheel. Would a chainstay and possibly seatstay from a more recent year BigHit fit the 03 frame? I know that BETD makes one too, but is there any way this is cheaper? Thanks.

    the main frames were different between these years. the measurements might be the same as far as width of the linkages and size of the bearings, but i'm pretty sure it'll mess the geometry up.

    sadly, despite my name, the big hit is one of the specialized bikes i haven't played with much. played on it plenty, but never felt the need to tear it to pieces and make it different.
