    What suspension type has my Fuel 90?

    Single pivot? I can't seem to find it on Google.

    What year? The new one is a modified singlepivot with concentric drop out(ABP), I thought the older ones is like a 4-bar linkage.

    It's a 4-link that's close to the Spesh FSR design, but the dropouts are on the chainstays... so it acts like (and technically is) a single pivot. (I think ABP shares the pivot at the axle point right?)

    Other than looking similar it is not anything like an FSR design. It is a single pivot with a rocker activated shock. There are no chain stay pivots (or even seat stay pivots). It is affected by pedaling and braking forces unlike a FSR.
