    for suspension geeks

    not knolly related, but thought you guys might find it interesting:

    ive never seen anything like this, whether it does what they say it does, only time will tell:

    Angle Optimized Suspension - YouTube!

    i was initially suspect as it is very different from what Dan Atherton has been riding in the Enduro World Series, but it does seem very well thought out all the same (hardly a rush to market job, post the damning remarks about the appearance of Dans bike, which in fairness was quite fugly).

    i sort of freaks me to think about the bb actually moving position (to stop chain growth) with respect to the front triangle...whether its good to ride or not in reality, i dont know.

    ...and NO, im no selling my Knolly to get one.

    It seems to be a RTS Version 2.0
    I used to ride to Win ... Now I ride to Grin

    Here's another of their suspension videos; more of a promotional advert video.

    I always enjoy the intricacies of bike suspension; suspension in general. The movement and engineering behind it is pretty amazing. That was one of the things that drew me to Knolly's unique and distinctive Four by 4 Linkage.

    Well the Atherton's seem to think it works :P

    I'm quite impressed and happy for GT's efforts in refinement... And really happy to see some 650B models come out.

    I loved my GT Pro Performer (the best BMX of the era) back in the day at Livingston Skatepark (1990), but since those days, GT has been well off my radar, until now, these new bikes, and the Athertons success, have re-positioned them.
