Nothing all that interesting, really, just a variation on a theme of a Zimin's latter bikes:

His first MBBs were extremely unorthodox and likely work very well for what they were intended to accomplish (MBB with VERY little flop, pedal feedback and steering inertia due to BB located ON the steering axis), but it involves sacrifices I'm not willing to make :).

As for rear swingarm, it is akin to Toxy ZR:

Unfortunately, it might be scrapped in favor of conventional swingarm (or even no suspension at all) because the builder has little access to good tooling and improvisation only gets you so far.

After some ruminations, I think I'll be doing it 'as pictured' anyway.
It WILL bob, I'll just go with much less (or, indeed, zero) sag for smoother roads (of course it would result less useable travel, but this is better than nothing) and for really rough roads some bob is 'lesser evil'. Air shock allow for easy tuning.
