I posted this in the beginners corner but suspect my curiousity was misinterpreted as being a major factor in my pending bike purchase, which it is not. I was wondering if anyone could explain some of the pros and cons of the two main, as I see it, rear shock configurations. By two main configurations I mean either "anchored" near the bottom bracket or anchored at the top of the rear triangle. It even seems like some manufacturers use different configurations on different levels of bikes, so there must be some reason for changing from one to the other. Sorry if this has been addressed previously.
