Thanks for the nice words guys and thanks for the feature Vitalmtb.

I designed the bike but left the fabrication to the experts. It would be prohibitively expensive to do it myself.

Been busy with work and the holidays lately so have little time to test and setup the bike.

First time to test it the idler pulley bearing which had ceramic coated balls but plastic races broke on the 2nd lap before I even had the chance to make adjustments to the suspension.

2nd time to test I changed the bearing to a steel one and it held up. The bike felt good even in the tight switchbacks and didn't feel cumbersome at all. But it was a trail that I rarely go to and it also didn't have the rough rocky square edge hits that might show the advantages of a rear axle path and 29er wheels. Altough a fast youngster did say he liked it after taking it out for a lap so that's encouraging.

Finally, going to test it on the new year on a trail I'm familiar with which also have the rockies that will favor this kind of bike. I'm also slowly building up the speed. Checking the pivots and welds after every run and trying to feel what the bike is doing before committing 100% just to be safe. Also have a 27.5 tues to compare to.
