I am not anti steel frames it is just 99% of them are single pivots like soup says. That just doesn't do it for me.

I dunno, there's something about steel full suspensions that don't do it for me. The tubes look too small.
I love me a good steel full suspension bike. But these don't do i for me.

Most of them are gates with suspension , harsh , but sums them up pretty much
dopes mine fit this description?

I still love road bikes with horizontal top tubes and round tubing, so the gate with squish sounds pretty great to me.

Nope, I’d have said that wayyy before now if I thought that! It’s far more imaginative than a basic triangle up front.
Single pivot reminds me of my mates old Orange 5 & the even older Patriot.

Fair one , all too common for negative feedback to run away with itself on PB, mindless criticism isn’t something I’d like to be personally associated with (not referring to comments right here, right now). We as a group have seen it so many goddamn times prior though, it’s tiresome & a complete waste of everyone’s time as it just borders on negating stoke, my stoke will forever be unaffected though lol

See the point you make, you want a little clarity, clarity that comes with constructive feedback & viewpoints other than your own (which may be biased) because passion can make oversights invisible to those whom are closest.

f*cks sake I digressed but you can decipher I hope! tup
