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.

 

ZIGGY LINK | FAQ

What tools are required to install the Ziggy Link? 
Torque wrench (up to 14Nm) 5 & 6mm Allen torque bits 5 & 6mm Allen keys Lithium-based grease 

Can a home mechanic install the Ziggy Link? 
Yes, it’s a fairly straightforward job for a competent home mechanic and there are no bearings in the lower link, but due to the nature of a suspension linkage, it is imperative that torque settings are adhered to. We, therefore, recommend that work should not be attempted without a torque wrench and the knowledge to use it accordingly. For a professional shop mechanic, this is a quick and simple job and if you’re friends with your local Forbidden dealer, perhaps buy them some beers (or cookies) and they might do it for you. 

Does the Ziggy Link change the Druid/Dreadnought’s geometry?
We have offset any changes to the kinematics but the geometry is marginally lower and slacker.
