How did it perform on the race track or w/further testing? Is the frame & geometry just what you expected in performance riding/racing? Anything you would change?
I guess you don't have time to build similar frames or these dual-pies for sale?
Can you post-up some more video. This time don't try to record the CA screen while going top speeds... just show us the road view front/rear like Luke did in this last race or like Greg does rocketing around DC.
Awesome project & beautiful work too!

I'm in the process of building a custom frame and the designs I've been playing with are fairly similar to yours with the shock set up like that.
What's the rear travel and ride like on yours ?
I guess we're taking different applications, I'm looking at something similar but with a slightly shorter wheel base for a plush offroader without being an extreme DH bike to ride off cliffs.
Farfle wrote:The rear travel is around 6.5"-7" and the front fork is around 7.5"-8". As far as ride goes, Etard says it rides like a 80's caddy, I think it rides really smooth, but would never jump it, its too soft and the rear swingarm is still a bit too flexy to take a ton of abuse IMHO. Im going to shorten the wheelbase on mine about 4" with the new swingarm.
