Default Re: Full Suspension....Yes it's possible

The front frame is aluminum, the rear suspension is steel.

The aluminum welding is almost as strong as mild better than tig (my opinion).
Bike is experimental and took a while to work out the bugs.

Now that it's reliable, I will tear it down, clean it up and paint it.

No issues with the china chain...just keep it well lubed and it works fine. I use Rustcheck. keeps it lubed and rust free.

Check out these links for more info on aluminum welding:
