Counterpoint: We Need Suspension Lockout Levers
Agree. Gimmee a remote lever and some variable compression damping.

Point: Suspension Lockout Levers Have Made Bikes Worse
Err.. this seems nuts. Do you think variable compression damping is also a backward idea on sports cars and rally cars?! If so, you might want to chat with a bunch of suspension engineers about how adaptive damping has 'made cars worse'. Seems to me that the ability to vary (in real time) the amount of damping in a vehicle's suspension is pretty damn useful, particularly for a vehicle which crosses surfaces with a broad range of roughnesses at a wide range of speeds. And for an MTB, there is the added factor of a rider who might be doing anything from coasting to jumping up and down on the pedals like an uncoordinated overweight gorilla (that's me these days). For a rider who is really attacking an up-and-down trail with lots of different surfaces, like many modern 'XC' courses, I think a remote 'lockout' is the cat's meow. Combine said remote lockout with a linkage that has modest anti-squat, and you have a versatile mile-crunching machine --albeit with a cluttered handlebar.

Lenz Sport Lunchbox, Size XL 6" rear travel 29 inch wheels “Punkass” super short chainstay (16.8" !) 12x157mm rear thru-axle 30.9mm seatpost diameter Routing for stealth dropper posts Threaded BB shell Shock: Fox Float-X, Factory, CTD, Kashima Fork: Pike RCT3 150mm (frame is compatible with 150mm, 160mm, or 170mm forks) Drivetrain: SRAM XX1, 175m arms, 28t ring. Blackspire chainring guard Wheels: FlowEX laced with DT Comps to Hope Pro2 Evo hubs, Bontrager SE4 2.3 tires Brakes: Shimano XT M785, 180mm RT66 rotors, Seatpost: Reverb 125mm drop, external Saddle: Fizik Tundra Handlebar: Spank Spike 777 Stem: 60mm Truvative For geometry and more info on the frameset, see http://lenzsport.com/mountain-bikes/lunchbox/ I am the first owner of this bike (frame ordered straight from Devin Lenz, and delivered in 5/2014). Original frameset price is $2550 USD. Frame is used but in good shape. No dents but the usual scuffs, including a couple of places where decals are worns. Driveside chainstay has shoe scuff marks (pictured). Fork stanchions and shock are free of scratches. Both work great. Shock probably needs a rebuild soon, based on hours. Drivetrain works great. Scuffs as expected. Reverb works but is a bit sluggish. Shaft has a couple nasty scratches (pictured). It's an external-cable reverb, hence the somewhat gangster cable routing, but Lenz says the bike is stealth-compatible. So, if you replace the post, go Stealth. Wheels are great. Straight, hubs roll smoothly. Tires are set up tubeless and have lots of life remaining. The finish on the frame is Lenz' Rawthic. According to my logs, the bike has ~2200km on it. Chain, cassette and ring have been replaced so have less use. This is a special bike! Short stays, slack, 29er - ahead of it's time, and a real monster in gnarly terrain. I'm selling only because circustances change.
