Blaine doesn't do anything special, nor do I.....focus on building a good suspension with high clearance and good travel and do what it takes to accomplish that. Simple as that.

Any off-the-shelf one, perhaps. Just because it has longer or shorter arms doesn't mean it sucks anymore or less than Blaine's custom mid arm. It just means it has longer arms and may or may not have a larger footprint under the frame. One thing you need to stop focusing on so much is arm length and the titles associated with it......you'll progress a lot quicker with the educational phase of suspension design once you stop doing that.

Good discussion dudes. OP is learning some stuff.
Yes off the shelf is what I meant.....
