Feels more natural when shock controls things, then chain pull etc. Originally Posted by ebeer. I went out with them a couple of times, and that was pretty much it. I do everything, essentially. The suspension's purpose is to absorb bumps, reduce vibration, and maintain grip through vertical compliance, and will compress due to acceleration unless stopped by shock damping or a counter-force from the suspension.
Life in every breath.
As suspension travel increases, improvements in traction and comfort are realized, but maintaining an efficient ride becomes a greater challenge. There are other key details that allow dw-link designers to build a better bike. In spite of that, they climb and bomb downhill like those of us on DW-Link rears.
It was a sensation he believes first developed in both his early riding and his activities outside of biking.

Join Date Mar 2008 Posts 81 I'm not a fan of having to flip a lever to make a bike climb well because a there are bikes you can buy which don't need this and b having ridden said bikes for a while, I'm so out of the habit that when I do, I always forget and end up bobbing up hill and bouncing down. Fit and geometry leaves more impact to your ride feel IMHO..
Simply put, the dw-link is the next level of suspension design.
No other SDL design has this. Call Us Toll Free: The extra comfort and traction afforded by suspension is usually accompanied by a noticeable compromise in the efficiency of the bicycle in general. Join Date Dec 2007 Posts 4,570 I don't mind flipping a lever. Dave Weagle's dw-link suspension system may be the single most significant advancement in bicycles since the advent of suspension in the early 1990s.
