Okay. I promised a second post where I focused on wheel path an other suspension attributes. I think these diagrams are very telling. We'll start with the Heckler, because it's pretty straight forward.
Anyhow, what we can learn from this diagram...not much, really. Other than that the rear axle follows a simple path laid out by the main pivot. Let's move on to the Ghost Cagua.
So let's look at the wheel path of these two bikes. Remember that they are vastly different suspension designs. Let's look at them side by side.
