I'm not an engineer, I'm just an idiot with a somewhat educated opinion that quickly deteriorates to ignorance.

Where's the Shock? Bold Cycles' Unplugged Prototype - Sea Otter 2018
@pacificnorthwet: ah yes so there are sag gradients on the frame. Makes sense they would have thought about this. Couldn't see so figured I'd ask. My other question is, does this design only work with the trunion super deluxe? The new fox DPX2 shocks have their compression and rebound dials on the sides and I'm interested to know if you could reach them.

Scott's New DH Prototype Looks Closer To Production - Lošinj DH World Cup 2018
Olivier Bossard Was instrumental in suspension development with the SUNN racing team back in the day and he has some hella strong beliefs about bikes being a sum of all parts and that just because you have fancy shocks doesn't mean your bike is gonna be all that much faster.... he even has talked about spoke tension between bike designs could have huge effects on the bike as a whole. Makes me wonder if that with SCOTT teaming up with BOSS Mr. Bossard had some input about the old rear suspension design found on the gambler and him not being a huge fan of how it was performing and drove SCOTT to try going to a more conventional Horst Link design that gave them maybe even just more normal characteristics or something.

Tech Randoms - Lošinj DH World Cup 2018
@heavyp: that word does have a meaning... It just Has nothing to do with traction or speed or fucking anything else to do with bike tires... "An assegai or assagai (Latin hasta, cf Arabic az-zaġāyah, Berber zaġāya "spear", Old French azagaie, Spanish azagaya, Italian zagaglia, Chaucer lancegay) is a pole weapon used for throwing, usually a light spear or javelin made of wood and pointed with iron or fire-hardened tip." Theres gotta be a better name they could have picked... Lol

Kona's New Operator Can Fit 29 or 27.5 Inch Wheels - Lošinj DH World Cup 2018
That rocker link looks like it sat in the sun a little to long.... Kinda surprised they went with making the rocker out of Carbon while working on ideal wheel sizes and what not for the race season...milling maybe a couple slightly different rockers to be able to adjust suspension characteristics as the 29er will feel and perform differently than a 27.5 wheel size.... But I'm more of a couch engineer than anything else... lol
