nice looking bike. :cool:

How does it pedal better than a hardtail though? :eh:
possibly cos the way he had the DMR set up compared to the hecklar makes quite a difference. If the wheels are lighter, and the cockpit much more roomier, it's going to go a truck load faster

Sorry, I don't have an intimate knowledge of his exact bike setup. I just hadn't heard of a 6" single pivot frame pedalling better than a hardtail before, that's all. :huh:

chain tourqe is when the rear shock stiffens up when pedalling. i.e. the shock motion and drivetrain forces are not independent of each other.

Thanks for the lesson.

Now tell us about inertia valves, and how well they work when used with an agricultural suspension design. :thumbsup:
