They did a while back (as did Canfield).

Pretty much confirmed what everyone suspected: 29ers suck.

Straight out of wikipedia

"After Mr. Weagle's patent applications were filed, Trek Bicycle Corporation released a version of the split pivot design called active braking pivot (ABP) in early 2007. In identical fashion to the split pivot design, the ABP system uses a rear pivot concentric to the rear axle. Trek's design allowed their new full suspension system to look very similar to previous models, but dramatically improved their ride quality. ABP reduces brake feedback that is typically felt by the rider as suspension stiffening. This allows the suspension to remain active while braking — hence the term, active braking pivot.
Split pivot patent applications predate all patent applications filed by Trek"

So basically, the DW link was a copy of the Balfa 2-Step that he got from the Balfa rider that worked with him.

And the split link is an ABP with a Katipo linkage?

Creative.
