Kona is making a production SS full squish bike. Well, at least I've seen some pics of their prototype. The rear end pivots around the bottom bracket (similar to a Cove) so the chainlength is constant.
I know a lot of guys are starting to run SS on some DH shuttle runs. Full suspension is much appreciated, and they usually run a tall gear for those short pedaling sections. The simplicity makes it better to avoid mechanicals and helps lighten a bike!
