    Which frames will swap out with goblin parts?

    If I am unable to sell my Goblin I am going to replace the frame with an XL. Since they are out of 22" silver frames, anyone have any insight on what frame these parts will best swap over?

    Thank you

    I switched parts to a Niner EMD previously. Be mindful if you go to a bigger size you may need new cables and housing and will have to check that your brake hoses will be long enough.

    This is spot in. I went from a medium guardian to a large silver goblin frame. It heavily upgraded now but when I first did the swap I needed new cables and had to measure to see how long my new longer cable housings had to be. That being said you most likely will not need all new cable housings. I was able to reuse the longes housings up front. The ones that run between the shifters and first cable hangers on the frame. As for the brake lines. On my guardian, the brake lines were way long from the factory. Even after swapping to the larger from the lines could still be shortened up a bit. I hope this helps. Good luck.
