    Which Is Better For 24hr Racing: BMC or Felt?

    I am fortunate to have a choice of bike manufactures to choose from. But aside from the different bike models, my general question to riders who have used these brands is how will they work under a 24hr race scenario and who has the better suspension technology: BMC's Virtual Pivot Technology or Felt's Equilink Technology?

    Cheers!

    Felt design is original and should work very well endurance riding for the smooth rider. I look forward to demo riding one.

    The BMC is an unlicenced copy of the early version dw-Link design. I'd rather ride the real thing, and the current dw-Link is even better.

    The dw-Link works excellent for the smoother and harder riders. Consider the Ibis Mojo Carbon or Iron Horse MKiii or Azure.

    So can I infer from your quote that you think the Felt would not work as well for a
    harder rider (Im assuming you mean someoone who mashes on the pedals).
    Are you saying that you would have more susp. squat with the equilink
    than with the dw-link for someone thats an irregular pedaler ?
