    SS full suspension mountain bike

    I think im in love. Been drooling over this all day long.

    I think I might have found my next bike. Not sure though, wholesale on the frame is not even cheap for that type of bike.

    Unless your local coffee shop is on the other side of a dirt jump park, why do you want this? It comes with a miserable shock and the suspension design is pretty dubious. Both bearings and bushings have their upsides and downsides but just bolting two pieces of metal together where they're supposed to rotate seems like a terrible choice.

    On the other hand, it's black and has rad stickers.

    I wouldn't want to actually have to ride that thing anywhere.
    Unless you are jumping, the benefits of suspension on a SS are questionable anyway. On a geared bike, you can sit and spin up the hills, so the suspension isn't really holding you back on the climbs, aside from the slight weight disadvantage. On a SS, you have to pedal out of the saddle a lot more often than on a geared MTB and the suspension just causes you to bob up and down, sucking your energy. I installed a suspension fork on my SSMTB last winter because the rigid fork was killing me on some of the roughest trails. The suspension works great on on rough flats and descents, but I find myself riding much of the time with the full platform, so that suspension only works on the largest of bumps and doesn't bob up and down when standing. I think I would hate riding XC on a full suspension SS.

    Well the frame isnt designed for actual trail riding. Its more of a slope style dirt jump frame. Im a gravity guy and dont do much in the uphill department when it comes to offroad anyway.

    I like it and wanted to share. You guys dont like it and thats cool to.

    If I was to go longer travel, it'd choose this.

    single speed full suspension bikes never really made much sense to me. For a short time I road a Cannondale Jekel with a surly singulator. I would throw my chain several times per day. I found that attaching an old deraillure with a short piece of cable ( just long enough to reach the cable stop) and locking that into one gear on the cassette was a better option, though still not up to my expectaitons. since then, I have ridden hard tail frames only.
    Keepin' it real, while keepin' it safe

    how are your nipples? pointy?
