ok the ecd is the downhill bike and the black diamond triple is the freeride bike right? so looking at them is the rear triangle assy the same? im asking because i have a bd triple and if the ecd has more travel from the same rear as the bd then can i make the swap to ge a extra travel? im not to worried about the front angles with the fork or anything like that just can i do a swap if there different or not.the difference i see is where the shock connects to the rear triangle i wonder can you just change that to get the extra or not?

I'm pretty sure the travel difference comes from different stroke shocks.

The rear ends are visually identical, but the ECD uses a 9.5 X 3 inch shock where the black diamonds use something smaller. ( I can't remember the exact size, but I'm pretty sure it was an 8.875 X 2.75.) I saw someone somewhere managed to put a ECD size shock in their Black Diamond, but I never heard the results...
