    Yeti 303 wheel path

    hey,
    Me and my buddy were at the local jumps in P*** A***, bay area region today and he started talking about the yeti 303. He believes the first 6 inches of travel have a rearward axle path. I am a bit of an engineer and looked at this picture and decided it really couldn't be. Maybe the prototype is different from the production but it just doesnt seem like it could do that. Also saw the modeling done by zedro(maybe WCH) and it really looks like a glorified single pivot. help or explanations to help me prove or abort my point? thanks.
    (Credit** Photo John for the picture, i wish he would let me take pics with him when he is in the CA bay area on my EOS-1D)

    this could be a variation on their vertical path design. looking at the small swing arm by the crank, i think it might be pushed down thus causing the greater swing arm to maintain a more vertical path. When compared to most bikes this would look like a backwards movement when really a vertical.

    exept they never had a vertical path design....they just said they did. Like i said previously, this is more "Lawill" than the Lawill was.

    With the technology they're using, they could of made a true vertical path, but went with a varying arc like many 4 bars do.

    could be my bike-noviceness, but ive always thought the lack of a substantial seattube would weaken the frame.

    suprised noone mentioned that in the post about keeping the roller areas free of debris. or maybe they did and i lost interest before i got to it...

    well it has a bridge where the track roller things are.

    and yeah, the whole debris thing has been the major concern so far, although the bikes has been in the races in proto form
