I have no idea but, not sure whn they phased out the 24'' rear end on the big hits?
So its probably 24'' rear if that makes a difference (although im guessing they have fair amount of clearance also).

yeah, just read about that. i think i have seen people running 26 inch with a smaller tyre.
the rear end i am looking at is £50 at the mo. if it holds out it may be worth a shot....
would be nice to find one that definitely does fit. the shark fin adapters are going for silly money now (that's if they turn up in the first place)...

thanks! it had me on a bit of a cliffhanger as there are actually no measurements stated!!! GRRRRR :evil: but, the link he has pictured at the top does look awfully spot on (30mm/50mm) of my FSR 99 elite.....
the next question is if the length of the seat stay is acceptable.....
