Looks like the people at Bikerumor.com have been checking out the i-track website!

It's great to see that they understand what i-track is all about!
Flow Mountain Bike have just finished their test of Prototype 3!
Follow this link to check out what they thought of it.
The last few months has been pretty busy, with lots of life's other priorities, like 'real' jobs, and newborn babies!
Nevertheless, we're proud to be finally showing off our latest prototype, cleverly named P3:
It's a 650b wheeled, 6" travel All-Mountain bike.

been a while since we have updated the website. In fact, we only just
updated the news section below since our visit to Interbike in
September 2013. Make sure you catch up on all the news below!
September 2013 - Interbike!
Semptember was a big month for us. We managed to make
the long journey from Australia to Las Vegas for Interbike 2013. We
also took our two DH bikes with us to show to the world! We met
loads of lovely people in the bike community, and was really refreshing
to see the human side of the industry.
Here's a couple of photos of the prototype DH bikes at Interbike:
To coincide with our trip to Interbike, we were also very fortunate to
have Jordan Cole from Craft Store make a short video featuring the main
man behind i-track suspension, Hugh McLeay.
This video seemed to catch a fair bit of attention, and we'd like to thank the many websites that shared it!

Prototype 2 is all dressed up, ready to go out for a ride!
This bike has some really nice parts on it; we're incredibly grateful
to our sponsors who have helped out with all these great components.
This bike will be attending Interbike 2013 in Las Vegas. If you see us
there, feel free to come up and say hi, and we'll be happy to give you
a test ride!
Jump over to the
P2 page to see more details about this bike.
Also, for those that missed out on reading about Hugh McLeay in Flow Mountain Bike Magazine Issue #3, you can now download it here.

We've been having so much fun riding this bike that it's been hard to nail down a time to get it painted and photographed.
Late last month, we were finally able to part with this bike for a couple of weeks, so we sent it to Grip Sport
in Melbourne for a paint job. They did an absolutely fantastic job
painting this frame, and we're really pleased with the results.
We'd also like to thank Eighty One Spices components, the Australian distrubutor for Syntace, Carbocage, and Formula brakes, for decking out this bike with some extremely nice components.
In fact, we're pleased to announce that the addition of these
components has helped shed some weight from this bike.
It now tips the scales at 18.4kg with pedals.
Don't forget, we're very keen to see our bikes make it to production,
so if this bike gets your heart pumping, then spread the word and tell
your favourite manufacturer to get on board with i-track suspension.

It's a great magazine, full of articles that will inspire you to get out and ride!

we had an interesting article here about how the slope of the
anti-squat curve affects the Wheel Rate. We've now moved this article
to it's relevant location on the theory page, here.

In between rides on P1, we've been quietly working away at the P2 prototype.
It's a 4-bar version, also featuring a rearward wheel path like P1.
We had great difficulty in deciding which of these prototypes would be the first one built.
In the end, we decided that the single pivot version (P1) would be the
first, as it is the 'purest' embodiment of i-track suspension.
P2 however offers some neat benefits over P1, as it features an
improved acceleration response, wheel rate, and braking response.
