    Beuller? Cannondale six inch bike

    not forces on the shock. blunt forces as in landing a jump. Instead of all the force being directed into the toptube like the prophet and canondale having to have thicker wall tubing to handle this. the forces are first redirected by the linkages down to lower parts of the bike where it makes...

    Yeti's new AS-R 7 and 303 (Sicklines)

    Yes, but by using beefy seatstays to handle some of these loads alot of those stresses are reduced. As in the seat stays are designed to take most of the left and right forces while the chainstay is just there for axle path and tension forces. Im talking in principles and relativly. This...

    Yeti's new AS-R 7 and 303 (Sicklines)

    It works and it makes sense. The chainstays are only under a tension force i.e being tugged backward by the wheels travel and we know materials are much much stronger in tension rather then bending or compression and so yeti is able to use only one chainstay.
