    Older FSR parts interchangability

    I'm calling on the collective knowledge of the forum here. What are your experiences with parts swapping on the older FSR's, specifically the rear triange ( seat stays, chain stays, suspension linkages, bearings) on the 1997-2004 models. What fits, what doesn't?

    From what I've read, the rear triangles from 00-01 Enduros are compatible with the 97-99 Ground Controls. So, what about 00-01 Stumpjumpers? Are they different than the 00-01 Enduros?

    Here's what I have: I have a '00 Stumpjumper FSR that I would like to upgrade to disc brakes. I also have a 98 Ground Control FSR frame. I'm watching a '01 Stumpjumper frame on Ebay right now that has a butchered bottom bracket. Would the rear triangle be adaptable to either of these frames with off the shelf parts? I know that Risse Racing makes some pieces as well, but I hear they are very heavy.

    The stumpjumper frames are possibly exactly the same but why not just swap everything over to the 2001 frame?

    I thought about that. The Stumpjumper frame (watching on Ebay) has stripped threads in the bottom bracket shell and would require more $$ to repair.I was hoping I could pick it up cheap but the current bid is $128.50 + $30 shipping. That's nuts. I don't think it's worth $150 for a damaged frame, so I'll probably just keep waiting for another one.

    ah yeah, thought it might have just been a broken BB rather than the frame itself. Stay clear of that one.

    Chasing the threads is easy if you just have a small section that is messed up or cross threaded, but this thing looks like big sections of the threads pulled right out. I don't know what all of these bidders are thinking.

    Pictures would help: 2001 Specialized Stumpjumper FSR XC Pro | eBay

    Look at the 5th picture.
