    Mean people are like slinkys. They're really not worth much but still are rather entertaining to watch tumble down the stairs.

    Thanks danno, wish my talent was as good as yours.

    Hmmm, the last bike looks like it has no fork.

    Yup, no fork at all. So under maximum-braking it doesn't bottom out the front suspension and bounce over bumps like a traditional fork. I think that's Ron Haslem riding the ELF-Honda.

    I think you may be right about Haslam.

    Here's the otherside of that bike.

    Hey, thanks for the photo! Notice that the longitudinal rearward push of the front-wheel under braking is absorbed by the lower swing-arm. The pivot-point for the swingwarm is above the front-axle, so there's some anti-dive geometry. The one-sided "fork" just deals with turning the front-wheel as no braking-forces are transmitted to it.
