That looks shite. As far as I can see from the photo (correct me if Im wrong) it looks like it's
relying in the 'bounce' of the frame. Think of the fatigue .... *SNAP* thats what would happen to
your pretty S shaped bike. And the forks are really bad. The componentry looks pretty painful too.

The shock dampens the amount of flex, it's not a structural member.
That frame can be ridden without the rear shock installed.
I've only ever seen one - awesome bit of kit - Rohloff hub can be fittted at rear (or could be
singlespeed), the guy riding it was a Mad Kiwi who'd do any jump or drop off you'd care to point
him at on it.
