Added a comment about video Ronnie Renner's Stealth Electric DH Bike 2/13/2013 9:57 AM

You are right it hasnt caused problems YET! COfattire is right the trails around here (CO) are multi use trails that do not allow any motorized vehicles. I have no issue with the electric motorcycle in of itself. It actually looks like alot of fun. Like others have said its the way its being marketed as a electric DH bike. If these caught on and were being used on multi use trails they would risk the hard won rights that the mountain bike community has spent years on. We already have issues with people shuttling trails that are heavy hiked on specifically the Apex Trail up in Golden. There have been big battles going back a decade to get mountain bikes banned from that trail because people were running DH bikes on it at high speeds and running hikers off the trail. You add the ability to go fast UP the trail too and you have a disaster waiting to happen.

Its not only about how many pivots you have. Its the whole package. I'm sure Orange can manufacture any thing they want suspension wise and they chose to stay with the single pivot cause it works. Most suspension talk is 90% marketing anyway. And if you want to talk about "old" technology the Horst Link has been around since the early '90s which is easily as long as the single pivot.
