in the hunt for a disc adapter, i considered the option of changing the rear seat stay on my FSR Elite.
just seen this and wondered if it would be compatible? not sure on the model differences in regards to the rear triangle seat stay.....

i considered using my 2004 stumpy rear end but they weren't compatible, the connection's were all different from the earlier models, the stumpy will be the same design as the one in your link

2001 stumpy rear end wont fit either the enduro does and is the only one i'm aware of that is the exact same size, i also had to change to cartridge bearings to
