    Trek compatability

    I just bought a 2010 fuel ex7 to replace my broken 05 frame only to find out they were replacing the broken frame with a 2010 ex9 under the warranty. Can the Fox DCLV shock be used in the ex7 frame, or would it disturb the geometry (I did notice a .25 inch difference in the shock length)? Are there any other advantages to the ex9 frame, ie weight, strength, etc, as I like the color scheme of the ex7 better.

    TY

    Been a while since I've been close to a 7, but I think the EVO link is machined different on the DRCV equipped models.
    I'm beginning to overcome my "momentum issues" but even that is happening slowly.

    will not work.
    There is an art, or rather, a knack to flying. The knack lies in learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss.

    would I have any issues with swapping the frames with all my other components, ie headset, bb, fork, etc.?

    From what I'm reading you should be OK moving the EX7 parts to complete the EX9. Both have the E2 Headtube, Press-fit BB.

    Here's the links to the specs:
