The forks decals are peeling slightly at the edges and there are two very small light scratches on the LHS stanchion they are very small and will not affect the fork seals.
The bars have some marks on them. The suspension is nice and smooth with no stanchion wear or oil leaks. All adjustments work as they should. There are no cracks on the frame.All areas of the frame have been closely inspected for signs of failure. The gears are shifting smooth with little resistance in the cables.

Main Pivot Location: This is located in a fixed high and forward position in line with a 32T chain ring position, this gives natural anti squat/bob when pedalling in the most commonly used 1x 32T setup without relying on excessive chain tension and none of the related pedal feedback.Chainstay Pivot Location: This pivot is placed in line with the chainstay eliminating any force directed to the shock linkage causing the shock to compress (pedal bob) due to chain tension. This pivot location also maximises active suspension when using the rear brake; similar to a floating brake design, without the added weight. Rearward Axle Path: Because of the main pivot location, the Escarpe has 55mm of travel with a reward axle path which all helps the rider to carry momentum over rough terrain and especially square edged hits. Leverage Rate Design: The leverage rate is designed to have a falling rate to sag point then go mildly progressive.
This helps the bike sit comfortably in the sag position with a stable platform. The lower shock mount moves forward with the suspension, this helps to keep a linear rate without falling off at full travel. This movement also reduces the shock angle change at full travel reducing side loads and improving the reliability of the shock.
