I must have too much time and too many machines on hand.
Here is the new linkage I made for her. Obviously a huge improvement at the stationary pivot with a huge 1.75"O.D. bearing. The linkage also let me use this freshly pushed RC with a
8.5 i to i x 2.5 stroke. I gained almost .75" travel and made the ride much more plush/DHstyle. This design also allows me to flip the linkage over and use a 7.875 romic and take the head tube to 67.5 for more of a all-dayer feel. It is night and day lateral rigidity, no bolts or all thread swiss cheesing the plates, just a bigeer, stiffer contact area.
These are just functunal prtotypes and I will post again when the blingesque set gets made.
