********EDIT BY MODERATOR***********
-DRACO-

I have added a couple pics from page 261 right at the beginning so you can see what we are talking about!

Considerations for design- seriously, guys, there is a ton of things you need to consider/keep in mind and think about.

Once i was happy with the angles and geometry, and had the linkage worked out, it was time to figure out how the frame was going to be built. Tube placement, diameters, angles of the tubes that dont affect geometry.. etc.

The lower rightmost one above was the final.

So then you check axle path and tire clearance.

Then you check chainstay clearance, chainring clearance, crankarm clearance, chainguide clearance.. eeeeesh

Then you design pivots!

Then you design a jig to hold the pivots in place!

Then a jig to hold the frame in place.

Then you're more on your way.

lotta stuff to consider!

The linkage in number 1 looks a little wonky. Maybe it's just me.

Kinda seems that it needs to decompress before it can be compressed.

i dont think thats where the shock is supposed to go, its not finished. notice the two holes in the other linkage and the one in the top tube support, it probably goes there
