    Diamondback, I think.

    Edit – Indeed they do, but according to their web site they don't seem to make the one that had Revelations up front that I was thinking of, anymore.

    (NB: not single-pivot linkage-driven designs)…

    Why not? The suspension action will be simlar unless the linkage has radically changed how the shock is driven (and it appears to do so rarely!)

    Cynic-al – because the linkage may radically change how the shock is driven 🙂

    So in that case, neither the I-Drive nor the Maverick.

    Trying to come up with a list of companies who make single-pivot bikes (NB: not single-pivot linkage-driven designs)…

    Orange
    Iron Horse (Bootleg)
    Morewood
    Santa Cruz

    Who else..?

    The idrive is single pivot as the extra bit only effects the bb. the shock is driven directly from the swing arm.

    You believe it actually does, or can't work that out? Frikkin journos 🙄 😉

    Even if the linkage doesn't do much to the suspension rate (most don't but some do IME) it'll still affect the stiffness of the frame 🙂

    We're basically looking for bikes that have minimal pivots/bushes/bearings to go in our upcoming "Filth Riding"-themed issue.

    I think Mondraker do one. A sort of budget freerad type thing. Aren't the Exprezo bikes single pivot too? I s'pose you should know seeing as you've just tested their Gamjam.

    Are you after a particular niche/travel cos we've got 4 inches to 8 inches being touted around in this thread?

    The Cannondale Rush and Prophet have to be in with a shout, single pivot and loads of mud clearence.

    Only 2 bearings and 4 shock bushings to worry about.

    Does it have to be current bikes?

    The Rush and the Prophet have been de-listeded from the Cannondale USA website.

    The Nicolai Helius is a FSR frame.

    How about a Raligh Activator 2? Only had one pivot point just behind the BB if I remember correctly.

    Saracen must do something.

    The Prophet isnt made anymore.

    It may do, yes.

    Well if you'd said that at the start then I wouldn't have had to have pwned you would I? 🙄

    i love posting links to their Big Hit SPEC bikes as all spesh owners have some kind of fetish lust thing about four-bars
    sadly i think they last made them in 05, but never imported them here, saw quite a few in Norway when i was out there

    Although a current theme breaker, consider throwing in some frames that have one way purging pivots/bearings ie Turner, Santa Cruz.

    Nicolai Nonius is the one you're thinking of.

    Go back to URT bikes – my Trek Y3 rode beautifully, if only it was slightly smaller and had disc mounts to fit Hope Minis……

    I know they don't make them like they used to, but werent all pre K2 bikes single pivot?

    If you're looking for really low maintenance you should look at funk cycles (http://www.funkcycles.com/) as they make a 3-4" full suss with only one pivot of any type, at the shock-frame mount (unlike single pivot bikes which can have multiple bushes, pivots etc). Flexible ti plate at the BB does the job of that pivot, nothing at the seatstay/chainstay junction, the bottom of the shock is bolted to the seatstays leaving only the toptube shock mounting as the pivot…

    Happy to test one for you!

    Sunn's new range includes a couple of single pivot designs.

    Several of the Bionicon Range, such as the eddison.

    I love those funks….29er FS pivotless…..OMG.
    Can I find $2500 somewhere? How much are 3yr old children worth on the black market?
