The Rocker Link is Concentric to the bike's BB Shell for cranks, this helped get the rear shock as low in the frame as possible. This photo shows part of the welded rear triangle on the right side in the photo which is connected to the pull link, and the pull link is connected to the Rocker Link which actuates the rear shock.

    Great design!
    How is the shock actuated? High pivot and a linkage similar to what Commencal uses?
    Would love to see a suspension action video.

    Awesome, thanks! That's how I imagined it, but hard to picture in your head.

    Thank you! This is a fun one to design! One design goal was to get the CG as low as possible and mount the rear shock as low as possible in the frame.

    This is a 100% Custom Suspension Kinematics and Suspension Design: with the High pivot rear triangle working together with a pull link and rocker link to actuate the rear shock. Will look into the suspension action video and get back to you. Thank you!!
