Attached is an e-drawing of the CAD model that Graham has created. This is what Graham intends to build. The only thing missing is the lock mechanism that will need to be implemented for use with non locking shocks.
[May 11, 2010 from Graham Butlier Via Alan Ball]This video demonstrates Grahams weight adjustment mechanism in action. The differential in rider weight you see here is about 100 pounds, and it all accommodated by the mechanism on the upper linkage arm.

I think I have a handle on shock position. I have extended the slide show to include most of the process that I went through. There are some things that we can just talk about at 2.
Updated Powerpoint with more information on forces
Spreadsheet showing force calculations for lift system.

The attached PowerPoint reviews the forces involved in morphing. (Editors note: I'm not sure I fully understand "morph angle")

Attached is the Gas Spring Force spreadsheet, per your request. I took a quick look and believe Alan should be able the match up the linkage geometry (top link, wheel link, etc.) with the CAD geometry.
