Double sided swingarm
Is there any difference in bike handling with a double sided swingarm compared with a single sided one?

Personally I find it easier to get the rear wheel aligned properly with the dual sided. The Tornado swingarm also makes it real easy to setup and swap tires.

From a performance standpoint, I haven't seen any appreciable difference in handling between single and dual arms. The single sided arms just get bent way too easily. And once they are bent, there is no way to re-align the rear wheel, other than to try to bend the arm back straight again! I have several bikes that still run single arms, and will only replace them with dual arms when the singles become beyond repair.
FWIW, I've already bent one of the heavy NF dual arms. But it is still servicable, because I have one of Allan W's axle adjusters on the other arm to re-align the rear wheel. I guess it's lucky that the swingarm got bent. With the dual arms I was expecting the layshafts to start getting torqued instead.
