How does that suspension work if the chainstays aren't hinged at the bracket? :?

it uses the ti`s springyness,instead of a pivot.

:?

So, it relies on the chainstays flexing enough to be classed as suspension - new one on me!

Think they class them as "soft tails" when they rely on the flex of the frame, it looks ace by the way. Always loved the decals on DEAN's for some reason!

Cool, I had my eyes on that one and was going to bid on it, but you BIN'd it! The frame looks better in your photo than it did in the Ebay auction. 8)

I instead bought a Moots YBB at a great price, so we'll see how this titanium "soft tail" stuff works!

this frame design has been around since the early to mid 90's. You have never seen one?
