Sinister recently put one out. I've always been a big fan of how HL bikes ride.
(??? Which Sinister would that be? Certainly not the F-Bomb and the R9 is not a HL... maybe I missed one of theirs...)

To the OP, Azonic still sells some HL-licensed frames.

Norco as well...

I think that Specialized's patent only extends to the US [maybe]. I know they sued Giant over a frame design way back when, but I haven't heard of anyone else getting sued recently. I'm amazed they haven't gone after Chumba.

They just put one out called the "Shenanigan". It's a 6x6 bike like the GRUITR. A couple of my buddy's have them.

It's US only...which is why many of the Euro bike companies use it over the pond. Scott uses (or used) it in Europe but not in the US for instance. Chumba, Titus, Norco, KHS all license it from Specialized in the US

Very cool, thanks for the info, that one definitely slipped by me... *roughly* shares some KHS Velvet/Devinci Wilson, etc., cues in the 4 bar linkage... swing link. Nice!

Found this thread w/ pics of one.
