The Outlier - The Full Story of the Wild Insolent DH Bike
Hello jefe, i'm the guy who made this bike. First, thank you to worry about me. I do have a day job and did not put all my life saving into this project :) Looks is pretty important but as you say it MUST be backed with performance. I think more time and effort will prove it good. As far as kinematics goes, the next models might have other suspension design while keeping the integrated shock and gearbox. Which one would you prefer?, VPP, Horst link, mono pivot with linkage? I beleive that at some point this type of design will have it's place but only time will tell. Cheers

@cwatt: Yes, a black stanction is on the list for the enduro version. The ultimate goal would be to have the rear suspension disapear, or kind of.

You have some good eyes! We are finalizing the assembly and we will post a video of the working bike shortly, with shifter hooked up!

Yes, it's one of our main concern. Will find something to protect the slider, at least a fender but there is some other options.

No problem, it's a good question. My idea was to make a full suspension with all gears but with the look of a single speed hardtail. It can be done but i agree that it doesn't mean it has to. Further testing and business case study will show if it has its place. But i'm personally very happy with the result i already have. Also, since the slider is stiff, it acts like a rocker. Would you want a rocker on your fork? For the replacements parts, you get a good point, we will try to get parts available and shipped fast, if you do break anything. Cheers

I honestly was more looking for systems integration before innovation. Meaning that the sleek design was the objective and then i made it work. The next version will surely improve. With the use of a chain instead of a belt, any suspension system could be used, VPP, Horst Link. The belt requires concentric single pivot concentric since it has to be pre-tensionned.

You have a very good point, we are working on a way to use a 150mm dropper post. It is one of the most important aspect of the next enduro design

Yeah i guess the design has already been made. I found it after i made the first sketch (i swear) when looking for patents about the design. I was disappointed that it had existed before. But i think that i managed to improve the design a little.
