Devinci's New Troy - Crankworx Whistler 2015
rocker link looks cheaply made , seatstay- rockerlink pivot also not tidy.

SPOTTED: Prototype Evil - Crankworx Whistler 2015
just checked undead - same kind of linkage progressive starting at 3.5 to 2.8 at 60 mm ( the 30% sag point ) then its linear ( mildly progressive) 2.8-2.6 (60mm -160mm travel) and then progressive agian 2.6-2.2 for the last 40 mm out of 203mm travel. antisquat is about 100% with 38t chainring , with brakesquat bad at around 95%. so the revolt bike is very sensitive for small bumps , supple with great mid hit linearity and overall good bottom out characteristics. I would assume that the prototype evil enduro bike will be designed in fairly similar way as undead but just optimized for 32T chainring. Now if you look at well designed fsr kind bike like yt capra its fully progressive 3.2 - 2 , antisquat 100% , brake jack 60 % . same excellent small bump suppleness similar characteristics , just different design but with good shock placement.

SPOTTED: Prototype Evil - Crankworx Whistler 2015
eljefespeaks - of course. designing a complex linkage in order to get performance you need even if there are drawbacks , like I mentioned in my last post , could offset it. Who knows. maybe i will test ride the bike and will like it so much and buy it . But for now I am more than happy with my current bike with well dialled cc db cs shock.

SPOTTED: Prototype Evil - Crankworx Whistler 2015
mr. DW surely knows how to design a bike . hopefully his next creation will get better shock placement or linkage design for ease of shock shaft cleaning after a muddy ride. This bike is possibly going to ride like a dream , but practicality is something to keep on mind too sir. Personally i think that there is no need for new complex linkage designs these days. variations of good and trusted fsr from many brands , vpp from others and odd single pivots here n there. ok ok ibis dw is good and simple. delta or this not so much for what benefit actually ? what is actually the holy grail of rear suspension kinematics? 100% antisquat with 0% pedal kick back , 0% brake jack . hmm?

ENVE Goes Wide With HV Rims: First Look
suck that enve . ( even with quality the enve is overpriced) and even if you manage to destroy few Light Bicycle rims , it will still be cheaper to get these Quality is actually pretty good. 31.6 mm internal width , 420g ,hookless http://www.light-bicycle.com/enduro-downhill-mtb-26er-carbon-rims-38mm-wide-hookless-tubeless-compatible-strongest.html#.VY6AT_lVhBc
