    Missed a perfect opportunity at 2:28 to pull The Stig signature move, suicide no hander instead I call fake news, that's not really The Stig.
    I have begun and I shall not rest until I have eradicated hope from the Earth.
    Think on this and be dismayed.

    AOTA. Shock is on a yoke that goes around the DT to the seat stays. It actually pivots around the BB.

    UPPER shock mount.
    How is it attached ? I'm happy to be mistaken, but doesn't look welded to me. There are two bolt heads going into d/t...?

    Yeah, the sled is a single piece of alloy, bolted to the frame. Potentially makes adjustments to geo and travel through interchangeable mounts possible.
