2021 Pinkbike Awards: Suspension Product of the Year Nominees
AFAIK, only products which PB have reviewed are included in this award category. Hence why there’s also no Digit Integer strut + Analog linkage nomination.

@Velocipedestrian: My post mounts are for 180mm direct fit, thus if you do choose to use a 20Xmm rotor you can still use the nice adapter with the straight through screws.

@wyorider: Initially, I too was concerned about side loading of the strut. My earliest prototypes used needle bearings from a Headshok. Ultimately that proved to be unnecessarily complex, and filled space which was better occupied with more air and oil. Bushings served this purpose better. IIRC the most rigorous coverage of the strut’s development are on the BetaMTB.com and MBAction.com The sparse look is a function of paring everything down, removing as much superfluous design as I could. To my mind, when done right, engineering and design work in harmony, neither should be compromised. I’ve been a biker for over 30 years, IIRC I bought my first MTB in 1989. I’ve worked in the bike industry for most of my careers, with job titles like engineer and tech. I studied both design and engineering. I hold two mechanical engineering degrees.

@wyorider: there are indeed loads on the strut, and on the bearings, in the frame tubes, and the saddle foam. It’s important to respect these in design and engineering. The Integer strut uses bushings similar to those in a telescoping fork to manage these loads (normal shocks only use glide rings which basically only prevent o-rings from burping).

@wyorider: I’ve reread your original comment, my apologies I misunderstood. To answer your question, I have no plans to make a linkage fork.

It yours get tangled in a VPP upper linkage, they’re equally imperiled by the Analog linkage.

The Amp fork used a 4-bar linkage with a small shock. Whereas there are three pieces in Analog suspension linkage. It’s quite different. Amp did make MacPherson strut rear suspension bikes (Horst Leitner invented it, and it evolved into the popular Horst link system), but again, though there are similarities Analog isn’t a Mac Strut. IIRC there’s a discussion of the difference, and comparison to the Monolink system both in Seb’s article and in the comments of the first look feature.
