Now THAT Was a Bike: 1993 AMP Research B2
@VicSandrin: You and Jason are correct. The Horst Link facilitated the first successful four-bar-link bicycles suspensions. I left the Mac' strut reference out on purpose, because so few people understand or know what a Macpherson strut is in the context of cycling. It revolutionized the auto industry in the '70s. The Datsun 240Z used it on both ends, Porsche's front suspension used it, which gave the cars that high-fender look. Mostly, it was used as front suspension on every cheap econo-box sold from '72 through '89. Horst and I thought it would be a good way to control the shock ramp-up and make a lightweight suspension, but shock makers (who came from motos) refused to consider the concept because they said that shocks could not be built to handle lateral loads. I guess they forgot that they also made suspension forks. It's still a concept worth exploring today.

Good Month / Bad Month: September 2018
Specialized said in an email, that they were replacing forks with new ones until they ran out, to buy time for Specialized and Ohlins to get the warranty process rolling.

I think the push back to narrower rims may be driven by riders trying to make DH casing tires stuffed with inserts flex a little in the turns.

Oops, Got that city/country info from the EWS. His Cube Bio says he is Norwegian-born. I can fix that, now that I know. Thanks!

Review: Ibis Hi-Fi Adjustable Handlebar
Yeah, old trick, but you can crash on these and you'll still have grips left.
