New linkage fork from Structure Cycles

Structure Cycles have designed a linkage based mountain bike chassis, complete with linkage fork. Linkage forks have been touted as the future of bike front suspension for many years, both for motorcycles and mountain bikes. Advantages include reduced brake dive and more consistent handling. Structure Cycles’ new design, the SCW 1, is reminiscent of the Whyte PRST-1 from the 1990’s.

Linkage suspension design are interesting for city bikes because there is potential to create a folding bike which only uses suspension pivots to fold. This is something already achieved by the Riese & Müller Birdy. This can create a better performing folding bike.
