Specialized Big Hit Swing Arm Wanted

Postby danz411 on Sat 17/Jul/10 12:22am

Hello all, i am trying to find a large swing arm for my big hit downhill mtb bike....i have a 05 medium model which means i can only run a 24'inch size rim on the rear of my bike because of the size of my swing arm, i know these bikes are pretty common and am hoping someone out theres got an old one in there garage?....it's Probably a long shot but you never know???? not really consurned with colour or even brand but must still function well please.....this is because i am looking to extend my bikes wheel base for speed by adding 26'inch in the back....either buy or swap. Cheers :)

Are you looking for the BETD seatstays? They're the only way you can run a normal wheel.

Huh Yeah i might be...? i just had a look at what you were referring to online...didnt expect some pins, nuts and bolts though....i just kinda assumed it would be a type of arm extension! have you had any experience with them before? I mean how dose it work, Will these bits and piece's allow me to run a large 26' wheel ?? Even though i'm completely confused if this is even possible i Thank you for your post :)

The black seatstay is replaced by the silver one on the bike. I don't think the larger frame sizes had larger seatstays.
Also gave another inch of travel too.

you will need either;

1) At time machine to go back to 2003, to when such things were made

2) get searching ebay UK

3) try and track down BETD (a british company) to see if they have any left

If you want one really badly I could try find where my old frame went? It should still be with it.
