So this may sound stupid but……

So the v10 comes in a variety of ways.
27.5/29 and various builds

My question is this…. Is the frame identical?
If you were to buy a. 27.5 or a mullet or 29 is the frame the same? Or is the geometry different? I found a 29er for sale but not sure I want a 29er. However my current v10 I was curious if I could just take me m90’s 27.5 and just slap them on and off I go.

Just not sure if the frame and geometry are the same or different? Different swing arm? Different lower link?
Anyone know? Thanks

I don't own one but I'm pretty sure they aren't the same...they can't be as the mullet at least will require a different link to keep the bottom bracket height the same...again if the 27.5 and 29 frames were the same the bottom bracket height would be higher on the 29 too. There is probably some parts of the frame that are identical but definitely will be some parts that aren't.

Hmmmm so they are really developing 12 frames when you include sizing… no wonder there are no bikes for sales

I guess my idea of buying the cheap one I can actually find and modifying isn’t possible

No one has any more info?
I’m sure someone has tried this before
