Noticias frescas oiga!!!! Sinister, la compañía de FTW (Ex-Yeti) va a sacar un nuevo sistema de Suspension con 5 puntos de giro y 2 grados de libertad en el eje trasero pero utilizando solo un amortiguador. En la imagen se ve mas o menos como va el tema. Hay una Bieleta cerca del pedalier de color negro, el amortiguador conecta esta bieleta con la superior y el resto pues es facil de ver. Esta es la explicacion que ha dado el creador en un Foro de USA: "Garson did a pretty good job of describing how it works. It has a "natural" vertical wheel path that it uses under most conditions. When it hits a square edge or in braking bumps the wheel can travel in an area determined by the terrain. sort of a floating pivot. the natural wheel path as I call it, is from top out to ride height uses the pivot that is at the bottom of the lower link. when you sag to ride height it engages a stop and begins to rotate the lower link with the swingarm. In doing so also compresses the shock from the bottom as well as the top. The suspension then becomes more progressive till the bottom. basically the path is two arcs based around the two pivots when contacting terrain as described above the vertical wheel path that makes many double link bikes pedal so well actually is a weakness. In these situations the wheel on the VST system is able to move in a more rearward path. when it then needs to move up the spring forces (or influences) the lower link to then retract pulling the wheel forward to the "natural" position. I have been building bike after bike and several sets of links and have learned quite a bit. For one thing, no matter how I build it or tune it pedals better than anything out there by far. WAY better, it could, if there was room for the wheel/ saddle/post provide 10+" of vertical (common) travel and still out pedal all 4" bikes. this is kind of a problem as when I tell people (for example) "this version has 7" will ask "will you make one in 5" version?" and I can't figure out why they would want that. I may start to refer to the travel as it's "area" "Ya, bro..it's a 250cc" (or whatever) anyway I am not the first to do this.. cannondale did this, theirs path was rearward and more rearward and BCD made a 30# carbon sicko tranny bike DH version and an outfit called "two stage" or two step" in NZ has one also that has been winning lots of DH races. All those bikes mentioned use two seperate suspension systems with two shocks etc. ours has a single shock and the systems are integrated, both these features are in the patent process as well as some other crazy shiz this thing does. George (rennen design) located some measuring devices that were assembled for the purpose of measuring bike suspension but never used. We are going to try to get those set up and begin to record performance information. the tan bike in the photos is still just a proto and the production bike may look completely different. In fact I am pretty sure of it because the stupid front derailleur is always in the way. I am going to keep the information on the BLOG updated but please keep in mind I am not selling these bikes untill I am happy with the performance and I am not an easy sell, even with my own ideas."
