Homemade DH Bike: I-track Suspension, A Story Fabricated in a Shed 8

Hugh McLeay is a builder, the kind of guy that thinks he can do anything with a bit of sweat and tears. Hugh's self-designed and hand-built downhill mountain bikes are a labor of love. The passion for the process and the reasons he does what he does are the shining light in this not-so-fabricated story. i-tracksuspension.com

    I thumbed you down for the offhand "Looks like a.." remark, but after further review, you are thumbed back up. Twice if I can manage it. But even if it "Looks like a..." it's still hand made, no factories here. I need to get off my ass / find the time and money to build my next frame (Which will "Look like another Santa Cruz Bullit.")

    Really great job. Really love suspension design, especially the real backward axle path. Now you need to work on your own chain guide
