Even theoretically, linkage forks are not a clear upgrade over telescopic. Each have their pros and cons. For instance, telescopic forks have inherent advantages which linkage cannot feasibly match: A guaranteed perfectly linear suspension “curve” combined with lots of space in the stancions allows for much better spring and damper performance than any linkage forks can achieve. \[Edit:\] Maybe "suspension curve" is not the right term, what i mean is, there is a one to one ratio of spring, damper and axle movement, which is very advantageous for designing dampers and springs.
