    Teaser pics of my BS Highlight ST

    On it's way to me from the Cyclogist Bike Shop in Fort Collins, Co. Looks like a real winner to me but I may be a little partial. Shawn and the guys at the Cyclogist are first rate guys who really made the buying process fun.

    It's going to be wearing one of your Ti cogs and your Ti 32 tooth XX chain ring and your XX bashguard.

    Build pix whenever she's ready to hit the dance floor, please.

    Followed by a ride report, of course.

    Those are some elegant lines! That's the first dual squish (assuming you won't be running hard front) I've seen with two bottle cages inside the front triangle. Very nice.

    Pf30 bb no ebb used. Chain tensioning is adjusted in the chain stays. Should be fun. If I don't like the full suspension ss way then I'll build it up geared and turn my form into a front suspension ss.

    Wow, if I were to describe in a word, "provocative" I'm looking forward to reading if it rides as sweet as it looks. Not that I would but you could run a belt drive, right?

    I'm not understanding how the chain gets tensioned while riding SS. Do you loosen the bolts connecting the flex plate and chain stays. What happens as the suspension gets compressed?, will a tight chain restrict suspension travel?

    There's no way you've waited this long to build it up if you've got it (or you're a waaaay more patient man than I) - more pics and ride report please!

    Ok, I don't know what I am missing/overlooking but I don't see how this thing works?
    I see the shock and I see the flex plate but everything else looks rigid. Kind of like the shock is just mounted to the inside of a rigid front triangle.(?)

    What you're missing is that the upper end of the seat stays is attached to an axle above the shock that is *not* welded to the seat or top tube - the ends of the seat stays move parallel to the top tube with suspension actuation.

    I can see how that could be now that you pointed it out. But just looking at these pics the seat stays really appear to be welded to the top tube. Its an even cooler design now that you explained it.
