    Destroyed the frame already, will this work?

    Not too long after owning my bike, the frame took a good hit and needs to be sent back to redline. It is a 2008 925. I really need to have a bike present and I have access to a 56cm Iro mark v frame that I can use until its fixed.

    What parts will transition over? What parts won't? What will need to be adjusted? I looked at the specs and it looks like it would work out decently. I could be completely wrong though

    thanks

    I should think that all the parts on the redline should be compatible. Only place you might have an issue is if the mark v is a threaded headset and your 925 was threadless. Otherwise it's the same BB shell, probably same brake mounts, pretty standard stuff between all modern bikes really.

    I would tell Redline to keep their bike and just ride that IRO.

    Also you'll need tools like a crank puller, BB tool, chain breaker, headset cup remover and press, etc. to transfer the parts.
