    How does the suspension work on this one? I can’t quite figure it out. It clearly pivots around the bottom bracket but how is the shock driven? It appears that there might be some linkage there and that maybe the lower shock eye is connected to the swingarm? In any case the bike looks amazing and I am excited about the prospect of more single speed slopestyle or freeride bikes. That is exactly what the sport needs if we are going to bring bmxers and snowboarders into the sport. Simple, reliable, inexpensive bikes.

    Black Market Bikes is proud to announce the the arrival of our prototype short travel frame….the “Killswitch”. We
    worked closely with Pablo Tafoya in developing our “Hammer-Link” design creating a our compact low profile
    suspension frame. The Hammer-Link provides 4 inches of rear wheel travel while maintaining a stiff, flickable feel with
    short 16” chainstays and the lowest seat height of any suspension frame….period. The Killswitch has the ability to be
    run single speed or geared for true versatility.
    Handmade from 6061 T6 aluminum with function and durability in mind, the Killswitch was meant for the bike park… this
    is not one of the usual suspects in fresh paint. Like anything we produce, there was a need for something more… and the
    time has come to…
