if you go to photo shop on your computer you can make the picture smaller by % or choose a smaller ratio. Both with create a smaller file. Make a copy of your picture first tho so you can keep the original.

Bigmicks right, check out S-M's build thread for details on the issues taking other swingarms/ chain/seat stays from other FSR models!

you'll have all sorts of things that wont be compatible :(
best to get your self an adapter or use rim brake on the rear :)

Cheers mate. I will have to check that out, sounds interesting. Yeh think i will stay with the adaptor until i start upgrading parts then i will weld some mounts on(have to be careful though because they will be attached to a large weld on the seatstay!) Got the whole thing planned out in my head now so i will start cracking on.

twain: maybe shadow would be nice, yes. but maybe I discovered my problem: I use a 8speed STI XTR 950 with a 8speed cassette and chain with a 9speed RD (952).

Does anyone KNOW if this may work properly?

i may be wrong but, i think an 8speed cassette with a 9 speed chain should not be a problem.
if it was a 9 speed cassette with an 8 speed chain it may have issues.

8 speed chains are wider than 9 speed chains. i think i've read this on this forum somewhere regarding chain compatibility on rear cassettes.

Sheldon describes it at length and in digestible detail here:

http://sheldonbrown.com/speeds.html

EDIT: just re-read your post and think you are talking about a 9spd rear mech with 8speed chain/cassette and shifter. if thats the case, ignore my post! :oops:

having realised that, i dont think that would be a problem either....
