When I get comfortable with a trail, it's time to ride one with bigger jumps.

First Ride: Promising New Suspension Design From an Unlikely Source
Because it is waaay too late to patent a single pivot swingarm. That said, I do like how this seems to facilitate shorter chain stays.

First Ride: Promising New Suspension Design From an Unlikely Source
Or you could move the IC upward, for a rearward axle path, get even better bump compliance, and use both chain tension and propulsion force to combat squat. (And add a high lower-chain-guide pulley to mitigate chain growth.) All I want for Christmas is my Canfield Jedi minus the upper pulley, minus half of the rearward axle motion (but FFS keep half of that rearward travel) minus 20-40mm travel, and minus several pounds. Why nobody does this is a mystery to me. Is there some terrible disadvantage that I'm not seeing? Even Canfield dropped the rearward motion for their Enduro frame.

Suspension Travel - What's Your Ideal Amount? - Pinkbike Poll
The real question: Do pinkbikers believe that the industry has discovered the ideal travel for these classes of bikes? And the answer is clearly yes. Most of pinkbike believes that suspension travel increases are the history of mountain biking, not the future of mountain biking. I'm pretty sure we'll have 180mm enduro bikes and 220mm DH bikes in a couple/few years. Same for the other categories.

Suspension Travel - What's Your Ideal Amount? - Pinkbike Poll
I was thinking pretty much the same thing. Apparently everyone thinks bikes are done evolving. I expect that in a few years these will seem 20mm too short, in every category.

How To Scrub With Eliot Jackson
There's a difference between knowing how to do something, and knowing how to explain something. Part of the problem is that after you do something hundreds of times, it's easy to forget how you learned, what you needed to know to succeed, and so on. The movements get pushed down into the depths of your brain, the learning process gets forgotten because you don't need it anymore.

Final Results: Red Bull Rampage 2017
We can hope. I've got nothing against gymnastics, but I don't think it mixes well with bikes.

The Wild Scurra 2 Enduro Linkage Bike - Eurobike 2017
Yup. Give it a high pivot and an idler pulley. I mean they clearly don't care about being conventional up front, so why be conventional in the rear?
