There are infinite custom builders making full suspension. Some single pivot - like Marino or Starling - and many multi-pivot options either making everything in house like Daambuilt or Altruist, or using a really nice set of linkage plates with everything else in-house like Waltworks does with Trek Fuel or Slash rockers.   That doesn’t even dent the surface for options.  To my knowledge, no small builder is currently offering a hybrid of full custom geometry (steel, Ti, etc) bolted to a big player’s rear suspension system which should benefit from resources invested in materials, manufacturing, and suspension engineering. Think a custom Marino front end with a Specialized Stumpy or Stumpy EVO or Enduro rear end bolted on.
