my carbon frame design, main triangle designed to spread compression and pulling forces throughout the frame. both pivot links are single piece to increase rigidity. unique shock pivot piece allows many shock options and travel lengths as well as a fluid shock path. most forces are sent into the BB area which is the strongest part of the frame. replaceable BB and rear dropouts to accommodate different BB and dropout sizes as well as being  easy and cheap to replace should you strip/damage the area. rear suspension path designed to absorb bumps while maintaining momentum, and minimizing brake jack aswell as chain growth.

 this is mainly just putting the idea to paper so i dont forget parts of it. its not to scale, and the pivots are just a general layout of the angles and lengths i want. Most of my thought has gone into the bends and creases in the carbon fiber of the main triangle in the interest of spreading compression, pulling, twisting forces into stronger more flexible areas of the frame, aswell as the direction of force from the pivots and shock mounts. i haven't finished the rear triangle yet this is a general shape of it.

 i would definitely sport one of these
