Recreational alpine riding is my thing. Entourage when I feel like crazy lines, Tanuki when I'm crazy short on time. STP for summer street riding, Old-School rigid for winter commuting and times I need an unnoticeable bike.

Life In The Loops - It Never Gets Old
MTB is a way of life and you always do a great job illustrating a near-ideal lifestyle. Now what to do with my high stoke level? I'm in Alaska and trails are weeks from dry....

Want to Win a Diamondback Mission Frameset?
When it's truly wet it doesn't matter, my bikes are usually covered from rooter to tooter in mud. Let's just ride hardtails then, eh? No? Exactly.

....I do think this bike looks lovely and would be happy to ride the crap out of it someday. Total agreeance there.

Wiki "linkage driven single pivot". FSR places a pivot between the BB and rear axle, so it is not linkage driven single pivot. Four-Bar can refer to both a single pivot (linkage driven mind you) or a (FSR) modified axle path setup. I am not confusing axle path with suspension types... It is the ignorance of those who fail to connect the two that leads to the lack of distinguishing the 2 main types of suspension: Single pivot and Modified Axle Path. Every design falls into one of the two. catagories. Every full-suss bike. I've brought you to the water, but I can't make you drink. I hope you "get" it.

Ahem..... Single pivot means there is one pivot between the BB and rear axle. No matter the rocker/swing-link configuration, the axle path creates an arc around a fixed point. All that other jazz around it just tunes the leverage ratio throughout the stroke.

This IS a single pivot and there ISN'T a damn thing wrong with that. Plenty of SP designs can outperform modified axle path layouts. DON'T BELIEVE THE HYPE!!!
