    Call me crazy

    but has anyone ever tried a Turner SS? Is it possible with the arc of the swingarm? I know Kona and Cove have their versions with the ECC hubs for tension. curious i must say
    It's all cycle-logical to me.

    Again, using the linkage program one can calculate the amount of chain-growth a suspension design has. A Burner has approximately 10mm and a 5 Spot has about 12mm of chain-growth, so I guess going SS means that you must use a chain tensioner of some sort.

    Yup. Blew my derailleur up and mangled my chain 14 miles into a remote 24 mile ride once (the farthest point from the trailhead, of course). Tinkered for a few minutes and came up with this:





    Worked great. Just run a Rohloff or Surly tensioner and go crazy.
