    Looks great for a airborne. What is that a link driven single pivot? Seems like heavy build even with the zee parts. Wondering if its frame weight or something? Should be sub 40 with the boxxers.

    Just like imbreeding, when there's two things that are way too close, there is always something that goes wrong

    Other than a similar shock cavity: completely different rear end, head tube junction different, straight down tube vs. curved (tr450), curved top tube vs. straight w/gusset (tr450), linkage and angles (suspension curve - probably) are different.

    Suppose it's okay that's there's 8 million Bottle Rocket knock-offs though... Or DW/VPP... Or standard single pivots like Orange, or that Pivot basically resuscitated the Sunday... or..
