Cane Creek's Titanium Enduro Crankset - First Look
@theedon: wall thickness and the oval shape of the crank arms will play a large factor in the stiffness. Just as with your Ti Honzo Kona could make it really stiff if needed (thicker tubes and change the profiles). It would be heavier, but stiffer. These cranks could have maybe been lighter...but then less stiff. Like any material it's tough to use a blanket statement to cover all of it's possible applications.

Starling Murmur - Review
@jclnv: if you build it to "look right" for the shock location the best you can get in that frame layout is a completely linear leverage curve. If you get funky rise up the back end of the shock at a funky angle and tip the nose down you can get a bit of progression but not much. If you add in a yoke and drive the shock from a point behind the seat tube you can get more progression. With the BTR layout you can get as much or as little progression as you want, easy to get more proegression than even YT are using. The linear rate will eat up trail with a basic set up, but if you adjust for bigger bottom out impacts it will really stiffen up the suspension. I never found a happy medium on my single pivot set up that was truly versatile across a wide range of terrain, in the end I gave up bottom out for better small bump.
