Al'turn'ative Tuesday


Interesting work. Another method of separating suspension and turning duties. This looks very rigid and contains direct steering, but does this design further remove front contact patch feedback from the bars? Increase in unsprung weight?

We are now seeing full carbon fibre swingarms and frames. Bimota has been combining aluminum attachment plates to steel swingarms for years. What if the the ends of this design were a light alloy mated to a middle section made from cf? This could come in lighter than the stout construction of teles. Then there is money....
