NC23 NC29 mix up

Hi Folks

Does anyone know if an NC29 Swingarm will "easily" fit into an NC23 frame?

Don't think it does :)

NC23 is a nicer arm IMO!

The shock linkages are different lengths so although I think the 29 swingarm may physically fit, your suspension will be seriously compromised. I also think that the NC23 swingarm is nicer too

Well I have been looking at loads of pics and I'm thinking that you may both be right and I will stick with the NC23 Set Up

Unsure about whether the nc29 swingarm will fit but as for which looks better then im very biased towards the one in my garage, always good to hear both sides
