We’ve known Open has been working on a full suspension bike for awhile, but this is the first time we’ve seen what it may look like. Gerard Vroomen has been chronicling their effort on the Open Cycle Blog to try and have both the new full suspension bike and their new pathfinder/gravel/adventure frame ready for Eurobike, but at this point it looks as if the full suspension frame will be the only new offering to make it – maybe.
From what we’ve read it appears the frame will use a Horst link design with an interesting linkage above the top tube. Gerard mentions both frames will be produced in Europe, but full suspension frame is part of a project started with HED to use Resin Transfer Molding technology to create the parts. Hopefully we’ll bring you more on this from the show!
