    Rush Carbon Swingarm

    I've read that the swingarm on the Rush Carbon is made of this new anodized aluminum, and I was wondering what the benefits are? Also, why don't they make this available as an option on the AL Rush? Finally, is it possible to order one of these swingarms to retrofit an AL Rush?

    I thought the new swingarm was on the AL Rush too. Bad Ronald probably could comment on this. I was wondering if our frames (last run of AL 06 frames) had the new swing arm. I looked to see if you could tell visually but I couldn't see any difference. Probaby not too much of a difference in weight of stiffness to make the upgrade worth while to me.

    Yeah, makes sense, plus the colors probably wouldn't match because the Rush Carbon is black and my frame is BTC. Basically I got this Rush 3000 frame for free under warranty, already have a Rush 800 and can't afford a Carbon Rush so I want to build it as close as possible weight and spec wise to the Carbon.
