It's because the force direction is not collinear with the seatstays. Trace a line from the pivot near the dropouts and the pivot on the rocker.

I think what I need to really see is a 1920 x 1080 version of that Danny Hart pan-o-matic. That's a friggin schweet shot.

Those Sound Cloud things seem to suck. I've never heard a second of sound come out of one. And this time it froze at twenty two seconds of silence.

No Alu option? Is this only going to be offered in carbon? I know $3K is the going rate for a premium carbon frame, but I don't see why they couldn't offer the Nomad in Alu for half the price.

The bumpers are designed to be run in combination with cable ties. Like this http://ride.io/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/IMG_2151.jpg

I just can't wrap my head around that floating crown design. It just looks factory broken and ugly to me. At least this one's not neon green.

Argh! I hate the slideshow format. give me an article that can load all at once! This is the main reason pinkbike is my go-to place, not vital. It's really annoying!

You can see the air valve on the front rim. The ''gears/spinning wheels'' are recessed in the middle to let the valve pass by.
