I got a reply from BETD saying that the new Enduro linkages are out:

Yes we now have that link (made). It will give you 5.25" and 6" of travel. I have them in Red, Blue, Silver, Black or Gold. the price is £100 plus
postage.


And here's follow up to some questions I asked:

The geometry is approx 1/2 deg tighter and the bb lifts slightly (approx
16mm). The compression rate is virtually the same.
The tester of this link say that the bike is plusher and they don't catch
the pedals like they used to. If you want to fit a coil over shock it will
be ok, as this link also fits the sx dual frame and that uses a coil over.
I have included a picture of the link, i don't have a picture of one on a
bike yet
I hope this helps.


sweet :p

by 1/2 degree tighter I'm guessing that he means steeper.

Cool!...

I had a BETD link for my '99 Enduro, and though it was nicely made, the 6" setting put the BB at 16"! Not good. But the new Enduros need a higher bottom bracket. I put a 7.875"x2.25" Romic on mine, to raise the BB, but I had to space the 'spring plate' up, as it would hit the cross member in the center of the link. BETD's link might be a much better fit. :cool:

Plus, their stuff just looks cool!

I'd like to see a link that offered more adjustability. If you run a 7.875 shock and a 500mm a-c fork you have a 70* + head angle. Show me a link that will maintain a 69* HA w/ a 500mm a-c fork and I would be interested. Risse makes a Hex link but getting info from their tech's is useless.
