Why does it say demo? It's an Enduro

I think the Trust fork is a demo.

Honestly if I had an unlimited amount of money I'd build up a Chromag Doctahawk with a Trust Shout

That fork would look insane on something that slack.

Exactly why I want to try it. And if I remember correctly, linkage forks work quite well on hardtails due to the changing trail as the suspension compresses. I'm no engineer so don't quote me on that

When the fork compresses on a hardtail, it's always in pitch (one end only, as opposed to "heave", which is both ends simultaneously), maximizing the negative effects of dive. So yes, linkage systems can work well on hardtails, but hardtails generally have less travel, which limits the effect. Linkage systems are comparably beneficial with or without rear suspension.

That is an interesting thought. I know the appeal that is marketed is that you have a different axle path than traditional telescopic fork to deal with square edge hits better but I never had thought about how that would alter trail until now which it obviously has to.

My buddies shop was lent one from Trust a while ago and he just took it down to Moab for a couple of weeks and was very impressed with the performance especially with regard to square edge hits like they claim. However I also know someone who rides lot of freeride and bigger jumps and he bought one and rode it for a while and it was not for him at all so he sold it. Said off of lips it was very squirrly and unpredictable. Granted he is not a suspension guru like my other buddy is so it could have been primarily due to setup.

Here is his bike which I think is pretty sexy other than the uncut steer tube (Demo Fork) but that EXT Storia makes up for it.

Yeah, the fork is the only detractor from that bike.
