Mixed up with Shimano version perhaps?

Thanks lads its def the wrong one, even though they are convinced they sent the correct one. Its sticks out way behind the frame.

Has anyone made a mullet Swoop? My Swoop 8 650b is currently a bare frame and was destined for eBay but I’ve got almost all the bits except a fork to rebuild it and I’m tempted to build it into a mullet. Looking at measurements it looks like if I got a 29er Lyrik 150mm travel geo would only change very minimally to how I had the bike at what I thought it’s best (180mm fork running chip in trail). Wondered if it’s been done already and if the result was good?

Built it up 2 months ago, haven't tried it yet.
160mm 29er fork lifted front end by ~10mm compared to 180mm 27.5
I might make a trip to Finale during holiday season to try it out in case there no powder for snowboarding.

Does anyone know if a 210mm oneup dropper will fit in a 2019 swoop? I've got a XL frame but i cant find anything online about the insert length of a dropper they'll take

I sent them an email asking the same thing, can't remember the exact measurement but you would need to have about 10 mm of the dropper sticking out to fit it. (so no full insertion)

Thanks, did you get one, does it fit ok? 10mm sticking out is fine but i wouldn't want too much more! It's annoying the xl come with a 150mm post, doesn't seem like it would suit many people biying that bike

Yeah at least 170 would've been nice. Haven't bought it yet but saving up for sure.

Anyone here that has a Radon Swoop 29 8.0 or 9.0? I'm looking into replacing my old 2015 Capra AL with the 2020 Swoop 8.0.

How does it compares to other bikes? Any comments welcome.

PS: the rear stays look somewhat thin. Are these strong enough to be ridden in alpine terrain all the time?

Looking at this build now:

I've got the 2019 Swoop 8.0 with Rockshox fork/shock and I live in the Alps. Rode it hard all year on a mixture of park and single track and it's performed very well. Only mods were mastic tape to quieten the chain a little and stronger tyres.

I was wondering if they will maybe make a 9.0 this year with a higher SRAM spec?

I already read about the chain protector: seems way to short and thin. But that is easy to fix.

How does it ride compared to other bikes?

It's my first 29er so not got much to compare to really. It had the geo I wanted and a great spec for the money so took a chance on it.

I'm on the 2019 9.0 and rides great. It's a great spec and geo is nice. Only thing is make sure to check every bolt and bearing when you get it since I (and a lot of other radon owners I met) had the lower pivot bolts come loose during a ride. Usually putting some threadlock on the bolt is enough put I got some free bearings from radon. As long as you don't mind dealing with this problem then its a great bike.

I'm 183cm, with rather long legs and short torso. I guess the 19" is similar to an size L, and should be fitting?
