Pretty sure Henrik Djernis rode one of these, albeit with elastomers instead of springs.

i'm pretty sure henrik's only looked like elastomers and were in fact, much MUCH harder*, especially on the rear















*some might go so far as to say "solid"

I heard there was a solid tube in the rear that locked out.

Got to agree on the cranks - very cool! I'd be careful about how tight that zip-tie is around the cables on the left-hand fork leg - I know you need to keep the cables away from being chewed up by the front coil spring but a zip-tie will do as much damage over time (also scratch the leg to bits at that point). :wink:
