Eurobike 2014: Hey! You Gotta See This...
The more you look at GoPro's the less they make sense. I have one so I'm not trolling. It's a general sports camera, which is why it looks like a camera!, rather than a cycling specific camera. They stick up or out stupidly high on helmets, which puts lots of leverage on the mount (and sometimes your neck!) and causes the creaky rattle. They're well built but I would buy something else next time.

Yet they still rattle like a pile of crap.

Protour you're arguing from ignorance. When you understand instantaneous centre and then you will realise the main pivot location is a small part of the picture and how common the change in wheelbase is through the travel range.

"True, but they've got different manipulated axle paths." Irrelevant. They could have similar axle paths by manipulating pivot locations. The bottomline is they, all dual links (Maestro, DW), counter rotating links (SC, Intense) and all 4 bars with Horst links have virtual pivots. As the rear axle location is a result of multiple pivot locations. Anything else is just marketing.

Actually VPP simple means a manipulated axle path which FSR is. One piece rear triangle has nothing to do with it.

I know. Nino is incredible. I'm just pointing out the sensationalist crap in the article.

I personally think short dual links like the DW tend to have a more prescribed instant centre arc which I feel makes them a little insensitive to small bump. Yes they lowered the centre of mass of the bike and kept the kinematics the same as the previous Demo. Quite an achievement. Again, axle path manipulation is a product of anti squat. Suspension designers are not concerned about the effect of axle path on bump absorption. Say bike A has a 10mm more forward axle path than bike B at sag point. Impacts of various sizes are impacting the wheel at various velocities and often in very high frequencies. Bike A and bike B both have the same vertical displacement of the suspension regardless of axle path.... Think how ridiculous your argument is. If suspension designers were concerned about axle path they would be far more worried than the effect on the rebound stroke than compression. Going by your logical bikes with rearward axle paths (which BTW don't exist) would never be able to recover on repeat impacts as they're extending into the impact. An insane argument.
