When you’re ready to embrace your inner Bowie, but red isn’t for you and you like a little maple syrup in your life, the blue anodized and Canadian-made Ziggy Link, from Farside Components, is for you! Replacing the stock lower Rate Control link from your Druid or Dreadnought’s two-part linkage, adding a Ziggy Link will allow you to run a smaller 27.5” rear wheel. It does this by offsetting the drop in bottom bracket height allowing for a smooth transition to a corner slaying mixed wheel setup.
WE ALL KNOW THAT 29IN WHEELS ARE FAST, BUT HITTING CORNERS AND LINKING TURNS ON A ZIGGY LINK EQUIPPED DRUID OR DREADNOUGHT IS A FEELING THAT NEEDS TO BE EXPERIENCED. DELIVERING INCREASED REACTION TIMES, A HEIGHTENED ABILITY TO CHANGE DIRECTION AND ADAPT TO THE TRAIL AHEAD, TO LETTING THINGS GET ROWDY WHILE REMAINING RELAXED AND COMPOSED IS ALL EYE-WATERINGLY FUN.
The Ziggy Link allows Forbidden Druid and Dreadnought owners the ability to apply the business up front, party out back mixed wheel size approach to their bikes. Replacing the lower link from the two-part Rate Control linkage, the Ziggy Link recalibrates the geometry to accept a smaller 27.5in rear wheel and immediately converts your 29er into a mullet sporting corner slayer.
