The whole package has a very "Engineer" look to it and could definitely use some smoothing out from the marketing types, but it's great original work from an obviously creative guy. Separating the component parts of the rear derailleur is really...more

About upside down shocks...In a word, gravity. Gravity causes oil to sit on top of the seal, creating better sealing and lubing the sliding surface. When the air can/seal are above the exposed stanchion, gravity causes dust and dirt to drop off the stanchion. ... more »

Running a shock upside down like that Pivot will decrease its life/increase service interval.

Junyuh has a 70mm stem to match Daddy Longlegs' 580mm effective reach. A 70mm stem is the shortest that I've ever had for an XC bike.
