| Why do Kona keep insisting that their
bikes have a four bar linkage? Whilst
they use that method for driving the shocker, to all intents and purposes,
size="5" face="Arial">their bikes are a single pivot design face="Arial">, which produces the same axle
path as any other single pivot bike-
Marin, Cannondale, Orange, Santa Cruz, whoever.
At theirsize="2" face="Arial"> tech page size="5" face="Arial">they continue to insist their bike’s a four bar linkage
bike size="2" face="Arial">. It isn’t. size="2" face="Arial"> Not a proper one anyhow. Specialized, GT, AMP, Giant NRS
and others (where there’s a pivot on the chainstay between the main pivot
and the rear hub axle) are true four bar bikes.
IT JUST MAKES US CROSS…
