That is a good one, thanks! Just the photos and captions and very educational in themselves.
I was really surprised by this paragraph:
Weagle is certainly not alone in his opinion, either. Jon Whyte has been a bicycle suspension designer for years and was a suspension designer for Formula 1 cars before then. In his view, developing Formula 1 suspension was relatively easy in comparison: "with an F1 car, you have 850 hp, and if something is a little inefficient, it's not the end of the world. With a bicycle, you have 1/3 hp to play with so can't afford to waste anything. In F1, if you're 5kg over weight, you carry 5kg less ballast. In a bicycle, if you're 0.5kg over weight, everyone knows about it."
I was also surprised by all of the DW/VPP linkage designs out there.
That Ibis looks gorgeous in orange... I would want to put it in a gallery... nah, I would want to ride the snot out of it.
