    I like that the IS mount is in rear but its probably the biggest and ugliest swingers I have seen.

    The adjusting screw seems to be a bit excessive and adds to the bulky/awkward appearance. I prefer the look and simplicity of the black cat dropouts or even the salsa.

    Black Cats are my favorite (plus Todd is just a cool guy) and my preferred dropout to use on the 29ers I build but I think these have potential. They don't look too bad painted out but they could lose some material on the disc side... much like the paragons could.

    he's been building ss bikes for a long time. looks like an interesting solution, matched with the right frame. i'll be interested to hear how they work out.

    Looks like it might make for a compliant rear end.

    Kinda four-bar-ish.
