Default Re: I See Springers...

That sounds like fun. I was considering a simpler version, a soft tail for an old cruiser.
I want to cut out a 2" length of the seat stays near the seat post and replace with springs. Instead of creating a pivot, I would just rely on the flexing of the chain stays to yield an inch or so of wheel travel. I have a KHS mountain bike that has an elastomer sof tail like that. LOL.
