mix and match

Recommended Posts

is there any disadvantage to mixing and matching frame components

aka mixing a red baron frame, with say, a fiveo swingarm?

not so much! they're all designed around stock dimensions. it's not 'till you get into set-ups with special needs like a frame with a vertical mounted shock and "big bike" style swingarms or bbr's perimeter frame w/ special exhaust. mixing different brands shouldn't be a problem as long as their designs are intended to work together! :thumbsup:

when i put a billetware(sik50s version) swingarm on my redbaron frame i needed to file about .005" off each side of the mount on the frame so it would fit just perfect. better than being too loose imo!
