What were the details on this frame (rear hub size, headtube size and angle, bb size)? And that’s a high pivot single pivot, correct?
Also, isn’t this frame with the vertical shock your MK1 frame? And there was a more Canfield-Jedy-looking MK2 frame?

148mm rear hub
56/56 headtube
63.5HTA
BSA78mm

This is a high pivot horst link bike similar to the GT Fury but with a more rearward axle-path and higher anti-rise.

Yes, this is the MK1, the MK2 was the result of a long lockdown during the start of the pandemic. No riding and having to close shop meant idle hands for designing a low stand-over reverse horstlink bike similar to the Antidote Darkmatter and Devinci Wilson.

Both work fine, the MK1 is just heavier by 400 grams

Next design is a dual short link high pivot gearbox bike. I'll be taking my time with this one though as I'm in no hurry to change bikes.

Are both frames 200mm travel ones? Only difference is the weight and physical design, or is there a significant difference in how the suspension performs between the two? Also, why are you after a dual short link design as a future project? It’s becoming a real hobby for you?

That’s super nice!
Can you share any frame jig or fabrication pics?
I got a friend to make me an enduro front triangle to go with Scott Gambler carbon rear end.

I don't know if you saw it there, but "Spy shots." of your bike showed up in the Tech Rumors thread.
