First Look: Commencal Unveils Prototype Enduro Bike With An Unusual Four-Bar Suspension Design
@justinfoil: Okay, I can see I'm not explaining myself very clearly. Lets try this again. From my perspective, Rocky has a rear triangle made up of the axle, the upper pivot, and the lower pivot. the previous iteration of Santa Cruz's VPP had a rear triangle made up the axle, the upper pivot, and the lower pivot. Rocky has a long lower link connecting the rear triangle to the frame and a short upper link connecting the rear triangle to the frame. Santa Cruz used a short lower link connecting the rear triangle to the frame and a short upper link connecting the rear triangle to the frame. Both rocky and Santa Cruz had upper links moving in the same direction and lower links moving in the same direction. The positioning of all their pivots are different. Does my perspective here make sense? If not, what can I explain better?

@justinfoil: That's fair. Huh, now that I think about it, aren't Rocky Mountain bikes implementing a Santa Cruz VPP with different pivot locations? Heck, the DW link is pretty similar to a Horst link as well too - not from a kinematic perspective of course, just a design perspective

@justinfoil: Good point. I was using it as an illustration of the point that VPP is a tweaked 4bar system that allowed its designers to market it differently, but that might not be a perfect analogy.

Also, the seat stays and the chain stays of what you're referring to as a 4-bar do have unified triangle structures - they've just got really really short chainstays and really really long lower links.

@DavidGuerra: Copyright issues? Why does Evil call their linkage Delta when its just a single pivot? Really, there are only three rear end designs: hardtail, single pivots (where the axle is attached to the lower link, Orange, starling, Cotic, Trek/salsa, flex stays), and non-single pivots (where the axle is attached to a secondary link - 4bar, VPP, CBF, DW linkages, etc). Everything really fits into those options and the nomenclature is just marketing.

Looks a lot like (a better looking) Jamis's 3vo with a horizontal shock

@IdRatherBeDHing: Oh for sure! They’re both awesome people who do a bunch for the sport/community. I’m just surprised that the Abq tourism arm didn’t find an Abq resident.

@chezotron: I get the point though. Why highlight local trails and not call upon local riders?
