All WC racers are now on 29" pretty much, or mullet bikes?

I can't say it looks good...I'm biased. But hey. if its faster. then what can you say... its not pretty though. The straight tubes on the rear triangle don't match up or work with the curvier front triangle imo
(srry for posting my own bike. but it was the only pic of the "last gen wilson frame" i had on my Laptop)

I like it just as much as the old Wilson, but i´m not quite sure the Wilson of all bikes really needs the HPP treatment.
I like me some HPP, but the backend of the Wilson is pure gold already. It´s probably just the right time to make switch and safe some money off those licensing fees towards DW though, since everyone is crazy about HPP anyways at the moment.

No DW sus?

In my opinion, old Wilson was a plain simple single pivot with a DW designed shock drive, the new is a hpp single pivot too, no matter how many links attached between rocker and shock.

The old Wilson was split pivot, shamelessly stolen by trek as ABP.

split pivot and ABP are just single pivots with a floating brake.

But from an engineering standpoint it’s like saying cats and dogs are the same because they have 4 Legs.

it really isn't, they're functionally identical. The seatstay is the floating brake mount.

Saying FSR and DW are the same would be like saying cats and dogs are the same because they both have 4 legs.

Please don't post your own bike. It's even in the forum title.

Not to encourage this behaviour....


...but man, do I miss seeing single crown bikes with rigid posts and rings bigger than the cassette. Such a mean look.
