I live by the "run what ya brung" philosophy. Just have fun with whatever bike you have.

Paint Scraper Prototype
We actually thought about doing the FreeDrive with a flex plate of titanium on the XC stuff but in the end the link with bearings turned out a better way to go. Especially once we ditched the needle bearing then the goofy little skate bearings on the next version…finally ended up using same bearings that the Boot'R used and all systems were go. I saw the 2014 Boot'R on the website. Not sure what they're cooking up for beyond that. I think there will continue to be something offered in DH though.

takosa56….Good eye…not just similar, that was the frame that gave birth to the Freedrive system. When I started working at Mongoose this design had never been used within the family of brands under Pacific Cycle that licensed the patented independent BB by Jim Busby. At the time this frame was moth balled as Schwinn had one take on the patent in use, GT had generation 2 going of the I-Drive and this was available. Head of engineering told me nobody was willing to ride it because of the sketchy paint scraper link / leaf spring. I gave it a go and it rode pretty good for a rough prototype. We of course used a link with bearings instead of the scrapper blade.

SR Suntour's New Marketing and Service Center in Wisconsin
I've been going to Taiwan and China bicycle industry factories for almost 14 years. I was a customer of SR Suntour for 7 of those and have been working with them for the past 3+. I have always found the SR Suntour factories to be clean and safe. I am not privy to what the wages are but I believe them to be fair. Honestly you can't keep a steady workforce in the factories unless you pay a good wage. The bike industry in general does a good job at this. Rock Shox, Marzocchi, Manitou, have been manufacturing in Taiwan for many years and it's common knowledge Fox is preparing to. Taiwan is the place where high end suspension for bikes are made.
