Bold Updates the Linkin Integrated Shock Trail Bike

Nov 2, 2021
by James Smurthwaite  

When Bold was bought up by Scott last year, we thought that might be the last we ever heard from them, especially as in the intervening years Scott has borrowed the internal shock tech from its Swiss neighbours to use on its Spark XC/trail bike and its new Patron emtb. However, it looks like Bold will continue to live on and has released an update of its head-turning Linkin platform.

Previously Bold offered the standard 130mm Bold Linkin Trail and the 154mm travel Bold Linkin Trail LT but these two platforms have now been merged into one line that can be adjusted between 135mm and 150mm travel by switching out a shock link.
Details:

Frame Material: HMX Carbon
Intended Use: Trail riding
Wheelsize: 29" front and rear
Travel: 135mm or 150mm (internal suspension)
Head tube angle: 64.2° (adjustable)
Seat tube angle: 77.4°
Weight: 3499 grams (frame with shock and Day Saver tool kit)
Price: Frameset €4,999, builds from €5,999
More info: boldcycles.com


Construction

As you might expect, Bold is continuing to use the internal shock design, however there are some big differences to its application on the new bike. Rather than standing vertically in the seat tube, the shock now lies horizontally above the bottom bracket. This gives Bold a low center of gravity that other brands could only dream of achieving and, it claims, also boosts the stiffness of the overall construction. As before, the shock is protected from the elements but is now accessed from a removable panel in the bottom of the downtube, rather than below the bottom bracket as before. A magnet-equipped travel indicator on the outside means you don't have to break open the bike to check the sag or know if you're bottoming out or not. Re-orienting the shock also means the seat tube is clear of any obstructions and a 200mm dropper post can be fitted.

Where the magic happens.

There's more than a re-alignment going on here though. The previous bike used a tried and tested four-bar system, but a quick look at the swing arm will tell you something different is going on this time around. The Linkin now uses the IST VP, a virtual pivot system constructed inside the frame. The linkage is directly attached to the shock and mounted to an axle inside the frame, which has allowed Bold to create what it believes to be the shortest link of any suspension platform. What does that mean on the trail? Well, Bold claims it improves the suspension feel, gives supple small bump sensitivity support in the mid-stroke and a controlled deep stroke.

A closer look at the new shock orientation and the pair of short links.

That's not where the suspension changes end. The bike either comes equipped with either a RockShox Deluxe or a Fox Nude shock. The Nude is Scott's proprietary shock that is used to implement its TwinLoc system or, as it's called on the Bold, Tracloc. This offers the bike three modes that can be selected using bar-mounted levers - a fully open mode, a full lockout and an intermediate Traction mode, that sits between the two for efficient but still cushioned pedalling.

The suspension is hidden behind a downtube protector.
The access hole for the shock now also holds a Save the Day toolkit, with a multi-tool placed below the BB.

Geometry

The geometry for the Bold Linkin is pretty much identical whether you go for the 135mm or the 150mm model of the bike. This means you either have a fairly progressive trail bike or a generally on-trend enduro bike depending on your choice. The geometry is adjustable thanks to a flip-chip in the seat stay, which offers 6.3mm of BB height adjustment, and cups in the headstube that offer 1° of steepening or slackening.


External markers are used to set sag and check how much travel you used.

Vincenz Droux, the founder of Bold, says that integration has always been a "core feature" of Bold bikes and the Syncros stem keeps the cabling from the TracLoc as neat as possible.

Re-locating the shock allows for a much longer dropper insertion.

Builds and Price

Linkin 135 Ultimate
Linkin 150 Ultimate

Linkin 135 Pro
Linkin 150 Pro

The new Linkin comes in 4 different versions and 2 framesets. All of the options come with the Save the Day kit that includes a spare tube, mini pump, tire levers and a spot for chain quick links stored under the downtube cover and a Syncros Matchbox SL-CT Multi-Tool just in front of the bottom bracket. The rear axle also houses a tool that features a T25, T30 and a 6 allen key all in one to adjust all pivot hardware and nearly everything else on the bicycle.

The builds are priced as follows: Linkin 135 Ultimate (8.499 €), Linkin 150 Ultimate (10.999 €), Linkin 135 Pro (5.999 €), Linkin 150 Pro (6.999 €), Linkin frameset in black or white (4.999 €). The 2022 Linkin will be available in 39 international markets by the beginning of 2022. More info, here.

 if fast could be judged or defined by looks only, this would do the Kessel run in less than 12 parsecs.

 So the bike will make riders cut the course/braid the trail?

Parsecs are a unit of distance... Wink

 @Quinn-39:

If I can put on my Super Star Wars nerd hat for a second.

Parsec is absolutely a unit of distance.

And yes, In Star Wars Han Solo brags about how the Millennium Falcon is, by stating that it can do the Kessel run in less than 12 parsecs, which doesn’t initially make sense.

However because the route to and from Kessel is littered with black holes, this actually does make sense.

A faster ship can skirt closer to the edge of the event horizon of a black hole than a slow one, thus allowing the faster ship to travel a shorter distance (and at the higher rate of speed).

So yeah, he traveled less distance, at a higher rate of speed, thus taking way less time than anyone else.

 @ocnlogan: What if you entered event horizon at the beginning of the run, and then exited a black hole towards the run, and lets say, it was a perfectly straight line from the entrance of the first black hole, to the exiting black hole? Theoretically possible... just saying.

 @notu:

I'll admit to not being a physicist, and I hadn't thought about that, so well played. You can proudly wear that nerd hat IMO Smile .

So the distance part would still be accurate, but I guess it would depend on the actual speeds involved to see what amount of time dilation you'd have.

But then that conversation calls into focus how the entirety of hyperspace works, if they talk about going "point five past lightspeed" even when not traveling near black holes, and then my whole "suspension of disbelief" starts to break down...

Its unfortunate, but true that most science fiction breaks down at some point, even if there is a veneer of accuracy that makes it different than pure fantasy/magic genres.

 @Quinn-39: *the Kessel run in less than 12 parsecs* is a phrase that we can find in popular-, cultural-, urban- and, of course, SW culture. It isn't supposed to be accurate, it supposed to just point at d
something and categorize that as fast. You choose to act like you didn't get the point.. when in fact you did. ffs, everyone did. Smile

the explained point is... this bike is effin drop dead gorgeous; if it would be as fast as it looks, it would be the fastest effin bike in the mtb world.
cheers!

 We have a local trail called Kessel's run and there is a sign at the bottom that says that same thing.

Everytime I ride it, I descend faster than 12 parsecs. :-)
  • 2 0
 @Obidog: While its not a "Timed" event, one can only assume that Hans "boast" about doing it in less than 12 parsecs alludes to cutting the distance, and also, time. So in a sense, the distance and time are linked, and thus it is implied that it is timed.

 Yes, it still needs it. Because even if your friends can’t see it, you will still know deep down that you are a peasant with your horribly uncool (but equal performing) non-kashima shock. Thank god it’s hidden, so random passers by won’t see what a horrible degenerate you are. It’d be f@cking embarrassing!

 Fair point. But if the target audience is hard tail luddites who want to try to hide the fact they’re running a fully suspended bike, you still need the Kashima. Their egos are way too big. What happens when they take it in for service? They don’t want the LBS staff judging them.

 Wait, so no shock mucking up the front triangle and still only one water bottle mount? Seems like that could have been an easy one with the all the shaping going on with the seat tube and still have clearance for a long travel dropper.

 For reals, should be at least 3 mounts in there.
  • 7 0
 This is a huge wasted opportunity I reckon. How many full suspension trail bikes can fit two bottles? Very very few. How many could fit two bottles plus another mount for tools/accessories? I'm pretty sure only Pole, and honestly they're a pretty hard sell.

This could have been "the one" for lots of people for that reason alone.

 i'm assuming becuase it has twinloc (sorry Tracloc...) like Scott framesets it might come with a fork, shock and handlebar so you have all the intergrated parts, although tracloc doesn't seem to connect to the fork so maybe there's just an extra tax on those who want to build thier own bike, shame.

 I feel like we're quickly running out of new trail bikes that aren't awkward to ride on rolling/semi-flat terrain. I'm fine with my 170mm bike having a super steep STA but now it seems every new 120, 130ish bike has a 78* STA or something close to it.
  • 2 3
 Lucky for you the 78* number is just 'effective' seat angle marketing rubbish. The actual seat angle looks something closer to 68*, plus once you're into sag, it'll be 65*
  • 6 0
 @Linc: It's a relative change... older gen bikes had an effective STA of 74*... where the actual angle was 64* and under sag was 61*. So the new gen bikes are way steeper and if makes a huge difference.

 7.7lbs, heavy considering how 'high end' it is. Premium carbon, etc. Maybe the tool is heavy. If the tool is .5lbs then a 7.2lb frame and shock isn't too heavy. But def not light for a trail bike.
  • 3 0
 Genuine question, do you think the deal with Bold is to share the design but stagger the release of similar style bikes? I think we have just seen a preview of the new Scott Genius. Scott will integrate its travel adjust system and hopefully be smart enough to include two water bottle bosses inside the front triangle.

 I´ve been really keen to try one, how it rides and handles rowdier riding. As a person who doesn´t have hose available, this desing appeal very much for easy day to day clean keeping. What comes to service i don´t mind the possible complexity that comes with integration. Shock adjustmens are mostly set and forget, maybe one click when riding progresses through season. For shock service, you do it once or max twice a year, so i could manage live with it. That compartment for tools and tube is nicely executed without adding complexity!
