Ok sure that's why it's one of the most successful designs in the history of bicycle suspension, and why so many other companies license the design for their bikes,(Iron Horse for one) or just blatantly rip off the design (Motobecane)? Riiiiight. Now go play nice or we might have to start cutting on ol' Crack 'n' Fail

I checked the Tech section and the glossary. Nothing in there so I couldn't be bothered looking any further...

some of specialized early front suspension bikes had a "future shock" label on them, so "future shock rear" sounds good to me....tom

I found on the Specialized web site that it means Future Shock Rear. Now what that means I have no idea. Maybe it refers to the design of the rear suspension?

A few of the sections have FAQ's, it took me awhile to find it.
