That’s cool, glad to see that it is already being done! I wonder if the flex affects the rebound in any way, similar to the way that living link does on spot bikes?

Agreed, basically it should theoretically be possible but yet no one seems to be doing it or able to do it for some reason? Maybe some of the boutique Ti frames are doing it?

No I’m just saying that they only seem to be able to get a certain amount of flex out of the stays so far so in order to get more travel they would have to use a higher leverage ratio which seems less fashionable nowadays. Unless they have come up with ... more »

Unless they’ve discovered something new, I’d be surprised if they’re able to get more than 120mm from a flex stay design without using an unreasonable leverage ratio.

Yeah yeah I’ve seen that, just saying what I’ve heard, I may be wrong.

The new Nukeproof isn’t a mega, it’s a new super enduro bike 170mm front and back

Wow, curious to know how that rides!?

Maybe they are possibly even thinking of migrating this platform to their Enduro and trail bikes in the next generation. Not that there is any issue with the current design but it doesn't exactly stand apart either.

You are indeed correct, the old Canfield jedi was a dual link with high pivot characteristics as well, so as you state, it is not just the traditional old single pivot type design (Evil or Commencal Supreme) that dictates a high pivot location.

Maybe it's just my eyes but the rear of the stays almost looks hollow where the dropout is attached?

I suspect there is no pivot by the wheel to keep it a high pivot and they must be using flex in the carbon stays for it to work? haven't seen it in a DH bike but most of the XC bikes are doing it now...

Yeah that whole pull linkage for the Aurum HSP was weird for me. This certainly is a cleaner, albeit a bit more boring looking design, but probably a lot easier to tweak the linkages for leverage rates etc.

New Carbine?

It’s a smart marketing way of introducing a new standard without upsetting people... it’s just for the aesthetics...
