    Good job!

    Yeah I like it a lot!

    What kind of rear travel does it have?

    Is it a VPP or just a similar design?

    Do they have a UK distributor?

    I'm not a 100% certain but I think that is more like a DW link, because both the pivots rotate the same direction, where as the VPP design rotate opposite of each other.
