    A4BL suspension?

    I'm looking at a Fuji Outland Pro, which uses Fuji's "Advanced 4 Bar Link" suspension system. Can anyone give me sone info on this, as a google search hasn't produced anything, nor can i find anything explaining the technology on Fuji's website? Is it truly a 4 Bar (not faux bar) and is it propriatery or licensed from someone else? Just looking to be educated about a potential buying decision.

    Thanks!

    What year is your Outland? 2007-2010 full suspension Fuji MTB 4-bar is licensed from Specialized. I'm not sure about the 2006 Outland

    2010

    I'm looking at a 2010 leftover. If it's licenced from Specialized, then it's probably a real 4 bar. I think their linkage is akin to Horst Link.

    Thanks for the insights.

    It's a really nice bike. I built up an '08 frame that I just converted to single speed. I like it so much, I just got a 2010 Reveal from Performance on closeout. Go for the Outland, I don't think you'll be disappointed.

    I'm thinking seriously about it

    Performance has the XS (15" frame) for $1299. It's a steal. Now I just need to find the $$$$.
