 EXACTLY!!!!! Redalp should've done something very similar to this if not just like it.

Another option would be to mount the shock closer to the BB (lower cg and better mass centralization) and have a linkage work by pressing down on it.

But killer stuff mang!!!

 Thanks, Im going to play with a bunch of different ideas, though this one looks like it would work the chain tension wheel isnt placed correctly, the angles of it will cause some bad squat under pedaling, redalps design uses some smart angles to get rid of probably all pedal bob, so im going to redesign until I can get the same effect, ill try the option you suggested and see what happens.

 if the shock was mounted closer to the BB without the design being changed, wouldn't that hurt the compression ratio?

 Redalp could fire their entire design team and replace them with you....nice revamp of thier poorly executed design!

 Maybe one day I'll have a shop, and you can design the aesthetic part of bikes, and I'll build them.

 The opposite side suspension pivots would be the same, just not including the chain wheel part. ALSO this is not to scale.
