    UQ suspension update

    gotta say that I love the new suspension... I initially used the shock cord through the channels with a cord lock/mitten hook going straight to my triangles... I didn't like the way the UQ scrunched up/shrunk (hopefully you know what I mean) when a load was applied. Picked up some line locks from DIY and stuck them on the corners copying the Leighlo suspension. I used some gross gain on both sides of the nylon just to strengthen in the corners and applied the locks. Used lash-it for the foot end and 1/8 shock on the head end. Probably could have used some smaller shock cord but its what I had.

    ** the UQ is a 60" Lost Biker shell packed with 12 oz of 850.

    Looks like a winner - I like how you used the line locks in the corners. I thought the uq looked familiar. You did nice work!
    I got in a fight one time with a really big guy, and he said, "I'm going to mop the floor with your face." I said, "You'll be sorry." He said, "Oh, yeah? Why?" I said, "Well, you won't be able to get into the corners very well."

    Vey nice! That Leighlo suspension really is nice. I'm considering converting my Incubator's suspension over to that.
