    However I do agree that hardtails rule. Im buying a GT Force frame but i'm definitely keeping my Hardtail Avalanche to build it up.
    Having ridden most suspension types, I would argue that they all are good and no one is head and shoulders above the others. However, one the is HIGHLY underrated is the GT ID system. That is one great design that does not get the hype it deserves.
    On MTBR, the reputation is infamous.

    Favorite system? Whatever one is fitted to the bike I'm riding!

    Only ever ridden a single pivot, linkage modified single pivot, and trek's ABP system, but I liked 'em all! Whatever's on the bike is the best!

    Another vote for the GT I-Drive. Super stiff, can stand and rail on the pedals without it taking any power away. It's the only full suspension design I've owned (ridden others for a short time) by the I-Drive hasn't given me any reason to look for anything else yet.

    Yetis ASR single pivot is my fave! Knollys 4x is a close second! The ASR single is so lively and playfull, my ASR-7 is the bike I have most fun on! I had VPP for 3 years and dont think I will ever go back! Even my carbon Nomad felt lazy and got caught up on square edge stuff too much for my liking!

    I agree after having ridden and owned horst, faux bar, single pivot, vpp1, vpp2, dw. GT I-drive system is totally under-recognized. I'd venture to say I-drive is one of the best.
    Remember, you are unique, just like everyone else.

    I seem to recall having seen a gif or a video showing the i-drive and Mavericks monlink exhibiting virtually identical bb movement as the rear swung through its travel.

    Have had a GT I-drive for 6 years.
    Recently got a Specialized Camber with FSR suspension, but have been underwhelmed by it in comparison.
    Made me appreciate how good / efficient the I-drive suspension really is.
    I don't think I'll ever be selling the GT.
