Trying to think of all the various types of linkage forks:

eg

Girvin - obsolete
AMP or German-A still made
Look Fournales - obsolete
Quasar - obsolete
Lawill?

Any others?

I used to ride the Girvin for almost three year- was a great fork. The linkage tended to creak after a while so I got very good and stripping it down and maintaining it. One of the most active forks I ever owned. I like the later versions of the AMP as well - but the girvin felt better.

I used a Girvin in a 8 hour race last year.

Nice and compliant but the lack of proper damping meant rebound was like a pogo stick.

I may go mad and buy it a modern shock :)

I have a version of the AMP German-A on my Dahon Hammerhead and also Groove. Work ok for a low spec fork. Would like to try the full size version with air spring.

Also have a Look Fournales - really looks the business, and superlight, but linkage is not anti-dive and the shock is junk - full damping is not much different from the lowest position. (Surprising because Fournales used to have a good rep amongst Australian motorcyclists)

Got a Quasar on the way.

Nuke Proof frame/fork. Used a rear shock INSIDE of the headtube (so all you guys crying about the new 1.5 tapered standard, lots of companies have been trying to introduce different standards all along).
