Oh well it was worth a try, guess the one picture you've posted will have to do for the time being. Still it's given me a few ideas.

Hallo Edi,
das bike ist sehr schön geworden. Good to see that you are still fighting for improvement. Looking forward to see it live when we meet next time. What a ton of space for the ESC.... Great job.

Cheers
Peter

maybe if you wrote Montesa (with one "S") it would be there...
I tried to find it too, but it seems that it had two coilovers in the rear and a tubular swing arm, as was the norm in the 70's...

lol, I'll try the correct spelling just in case that technique may help! (although I'm losing faith in finding that info) It may have been a "one off" experimental design back when long travel bikes were just developing. Remember the Suzuki "Earles" linkage fork Roger Decoster developed but never could get into production?

I just bought SB5. It is my first bike. So I don't know much about bike.
But, your bike looks very unique and fantastic.

Would you explain benefits of special feature?
It sounds great to me but I have no idea.

Special features explanation:

Constant leaning angle over the full suspension stroke:
This means that when the bike is in a turn and the suspension compresses the crashbars stay "in position". Just take your conventional bike (disconnect the shocks) and lay it on the crashbars. When you move the suspension through its stroke you will see that the leaning angle changes.

Virtual Pivot point = zero interaction between suspension and transmission.
I dont know if this will help and make the bike better to drive this is a unknown factor. The idea is that the rear suspension is free to work whatever throttle position you are in. Full acceleration and Full brake cause a lockup of the rear swingarm.

Suspension also works while wheelying: well thats exactly what it means. When the front wheel is in the air the rear suspension can still even out the bumps. Try that with a normal bike.

Internal fairing clips (far way from those damn curbs). I have hidden the fairing clips away from the outside of the bike. This is just a nuisance on any bike and I wanted a solution to keep the bodyposts hidden. But still have a quick release clip for emergency services

These are just a few "new" features the 2012 bike has over the 2011....
