Opinion: Mountain Bike Movies - Are You Still Stoked?
I have to say that no video really makes me stoked to ride. I watch the occasional edit to maybe see some sweet jumps or nice terrain, but it never makes me jump up from the computer to get on my bike. What does that is a call from my buddies, perfect weather, or most often a dream where I can manual for miles. So if it comes down to it, I'd rather see some gnarly DH racing, bar drags in loam, or tree taps in the woods than some guy riding to his favorite fishing spot. Sorry Mike.

Video: Fat Bike Shredding
I hate to burst the buying bubble, but purchasing a fat bike will not make you ride like that...and if you can ride like that already, you'll have more fun on a dirt jumper.

Ask Pinkbike - Single Pivot vs Four Bar and Internal Routing vs Water
Oh, and to more specifically answer your second question, the rocker links/additional pivots/bars/etc. are there to tune the leverage ratio to how the designer wants it. With a basic single pivot you left very much at the mercy of the main pivot placement and that often results in a falling rate design which can be hard to tune.

Ask Pinkbike - Single Pivot vs Four Bar and Internal Routing vs Water
There is no real advantage, it's just another way of tackling the problem. A faux-bar is basically a single pivot with a link-driven shock where those links comprise part of the rear triangle. You're right that it can be heavier than a more compact rocker set up (i.e Foes, Morewood, Scott, etc..) but also offers the benefits of adding stiffness to the rear. Single pivots that don't drive the shock off of a linkage (Orange, Santa Cruz, etc..) typically have very robust/triangulated swing arms to build in this rigidity. Ultimately, I think the success and use of the faux-bar design is that's it's simple, allows tuning of the leverage ratio, isn't patented, and looks a hell of a lot like the BIg S's four bar....and that can't hurt.

Ask Pinkbike - Single Pivot vs Four Bar and Internal Routing vs Water
I like to think of the brake-jack on my single pivot bike as a gentle to reminder to get off the damn brakes...

Red Bull Rampage 2014: Looking at 34 Bikes
If you look close, all of the guys without guides are riding SRAM drivetrains. It's not just the narrow-wide and the clutch that makes for the security but also the parallel motion of the new rear derailleurs. Without that, I wouldn't trust it either, but it seems to work as an overall package.
