I am a mechanical designer with a love for all things bike. I am not picky, I just like to ride.

Rotec is Back With a 5'' Travel Play Bike - Interbike 2017
There is a good reason that concentric bottom bracket pivots have gone away. With zero chain grown you also have zero anti-squat, which means it will bob more than a drunk man wearing water wings. At least it would rip coasting down hill.

Seeing that last crash, I started wondering if this might actually be a very good application for a fat bike. Could be fun.

Pinkbike Poll: Do You Ride Illegal Trails?
The you reason you can't ride in Government land is because of liability and protection. There are too many people here in the USA that will file a lawsuit for getting a splinter. That is problem. There are too many idiots that will build a trail without a thought towards drainage and other fancy aspects of laying a nice dirt ribbon. That is also a problem.

First Look: Hyper's Prototype All-Mountain Machine - Sea Otter 2013

With that said, "progressively linear" is really odd wording. There is a reasonable amount of info out there about various suspension designs. Some boys from Hungary created a fantastic program called Linkage, a ton of different suspension designs have already been analyzed. Their web page is http://www.bikechecker.com
