Yes, I'm going to build it. Name the frame.



It won't be flexy and yes it will be rootbeer. It also has the axle path of a horst link bike.

The black dots are pivot points and the thin grey line is where the spring goes ? Whats the grey line on the downtube?

Go with something western. Wyoming uses lots of brown so guy with some kind of horse name: Buckin' Bronc Brown, Clydesdale, etc... there are really a limitless number of untapped resources in the ol' cowboy realm.

Call it the Brown Frown.

A couple questions, if you don't mind.

How will you do the steel monococque at the top/downtube junction?

How will you handle the issue of the rail apparatus? If you make the pivot small, it will be flexy and the bearings wont last, but if you make it too large, the downtube will grenade.

And what the heck is that brace between the linkage(s)?

Will this be your first frame build?

Is that the final design drawing?

Enquiring minds want to know.

please correct me if i'm wrong, but i think your Lower pivot point on the "slider" bearing,,needs to start from the top for it to work...!?!?

also i'm aware this is just a squematic with out much of a scale, if scale was the case you will have the chainrings as "wheelsz" since the rings will be touching the ground do to the super Bottom bracket height,,well maybe the really high rear axle, let me tell on my Nicolai M-pire(9inch rear travel i have a BB that is almost at 15" and i touch the ground with my pedals if i'm not careful

anyway goood for yoyu for trying,, maybe this photos of the new Yeti can help you,, i got to ride it and is really nice in a lot of diferent ways
