Deviate Cycles - Press Release
@ Waki The C of G of the rider is more important as it’s the heaviest part of the set up, so running a low B.B. will have more effect by lowering the CG of the rider, than trying to lower the CG of the Bike!! But every little helps!!

Polygon Bikes Releases New Siskiu T Series
@tom666: the critical distinction, is that in the single pivot and the faux bar the rear axle is directly mounted from the main pivot to the axle, with a four bar it is not, thereby making the rear axle independent. Trek, Kona, are single pivots with actuated shocks. Norco, Specialised are true four bars, with a chain stay pivot, thus isolating the rear axle. An Orange is a single pivot but with careful pivot and shock placement it may be able to achieve in terms of shock leverage the same as using a faux linkage to define the leverage curve. There may be little or no difference between Faux and four bar linkages in actuality (see post re Turner's change) but that is very dependent upon all the parameters that make up each linkage i.e. pivot placement etc dependent upon how the designer wants the bike to "feel" in HIS view, which may of course despite being YOUR linkage of choice, not how you want YOUR bike to "feel".

Polygon Bikes Releases New Siskiu T Series
@mmm2ppp: it does now. but prior to the Turner DW link bikes, they were 4 bar, then faux bar and none of their afficionados could tell there difference despite the marketing claims!!! This was at a time that the Turner 5 spot and RFX were the go to bikes.

@tom666: Incorrect. It is still a single pivot but the shock is activated by a linkage. It’s worth noting that Turner bikes went from Four bar with all its supposed merits of uncoupled braking and traction gains to a Faux bar( single pivot) and no one could tell the difference!! Go figure!! Like most marketing bollocks!!
