Here is a titanium linkage fork video but I dont see any links to follow. Looks alright but again no info. Looks like it kinda takes off from where the Funny Fork underachiever machinist left off.

Looks pretty good. Seems very active.

Interesting. Wonder if they took their inspiration from this

Also, be VERY careful when googling eternity titanium at work! shocked

I would be curious if there is actual disadvantage when it comes to riding in pretty dense terrain with a lot of obstacles on sides. Also same for when the fork is getting more into the travel and so the layout is getting towards the terrain making it prone to hit? I definitely rode some trails where it would not pass.

kuzlich, prototype pics? Any other info, and thx for the pics as it looks pretty intriguing.

MXBREWSK, yes, this is a working prototype. The author is from Ukraine. For a long time, he has been making all sorts of axles and links from titanium and got the idea to make his own fork. As you can see, he did it. In the future he plans to establish a small production line. But so far, he has not made any announcements so as not to stir up excitement, which he will not be able to satisfy.

Hm, why is it right-sided? This way the brake works in reverse, which is less than optimal - the PM mounting system for mountain bikes is not radial, it's offset a bit, which means the braking action pushes the caliper axially into the adapter, increasing the friction between them and causing less of a load on the bolt. If you reverse the rotating direction (like here), all the load is carried by the bolt.

Well this kinda shot down the hope of a production version in the thread. Seems to be the same as the funny fork, prototype only, and probably no future. Not a dig on you kuzlich, but it doesn't seem too optimistic for a future product we can try.

The author is optimistic. I think that something in the form of custom production can work out. Moreover, we have examples of such projects when a real product grew out of the idea of a couple of people. Garbaruk chainrings, titanium frames from Tritonbikes, great Trailmech hubs.
All this appeared on the naked enthusiasm of people and is now in good demand. Of course, a lot of startups died on takeoff, but...
