A leading link setup looks much better in those respects. Again, for anything going where there are bumps, weight is definitely bad. The one thing that I like about the center hub system is that the tire stays level while turning. That's definitely nice if you have a wide and flat profile tire up front.
As I am looking more towards the all road front end, the simpler LL's is the lightest way to go when considering travel.

Enjoying the thought process of Centre Hub steering too, and it would look a bit out of place on an old Airhead
