LOL. He said hairy goat nuts. <IMG SRC="smilies/laughing.gif" border="0"> Anyway, I run double shackles for a reason. I watch too many people breaking shit on their 1/4 eliptical setups. Double shackles can't kick out sideways while they are extended(I've seen 1/4 setups do this on two different occasions on the trail). When the double shackle is closed it sits nice and tight locked against the frame for much less body roll. Double shackle is just simpler. No limiting straps. No holes drilled in spring steel or clamps on your frame. Simpler means less breakage/less problems. I can't really speak for how they relate to hairy goat nuts, but I really like mine. They are dependable, they can take a hit and keep working, and they do their job awsome.
I think this is what He said ??????? <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/thefinger.gif" border="0">Originally posted by Moab Austin:

You are right, they do their job awesome. Too bad their job will never be anywhere near a 1/4 elliptic setup.Originally posted by Aceguy:

I was thinking a double shackle (one per end) or a floating axle mount would make designing your 4-link that much simpler.
That was another thought I had on the double-shackle approach.Originally posted by SquirrelMaster:
