So I'm laid up for ???? weeks with an Aircast. What's even worse I dunno how/when I tore the tendon. I do know it wasn't a motorcycle. So what's better than watching British and Canadian MX on MAVTV.
I did hear something that struck me strange. Today the TV commentator said something about a holeshot device on the front AND rear on one bike!?? Hummmmmm....never heard of that and then I wondered how it would work.
We know what the front device does; it preloads the front forks in a lower position.
But what would a rear device do? The rear end already sinks when the rider accelerates hard. I wonder if it keeps the rear from sinking?
Anybody know??

The rear device holds the back of the bike down.

It can help stop rear transfer movement, and do away with starting blocks if your are vertical challenged like me.

It may release when you hit the gate bar.

Van Choate has one on the front and rear, and he launches on the rev limiter on that big block Zuk, and the bike only moves forward very quickly, with no suspension action.

So, basically these devices turn a long travel suspension bike, into a bike with similar suspension as a vintage (pre-1974) bike, to make it faster off the line.....cool! I always felt like my vintage bike was faster off the line!
