Thanks for the clarification. I figured this out pretty quickly when bolting everything together yesterday. With the clamps loose the whole frame easily shifted with the weight of the bike confirming what I had thought all along. I'm amazed that some of the frames I've seen on the board work the way they do. Maybe the difference between road duty and heavier use. My clamps didn't slip at all on the road with rigid suspension, but I don't think that will last with further testing. The broken mounts on the above photo seem logical. I have a few easy solutions for resisting the torsion in the clamps, but am going to do a few more test rides around the block with suspension first.

So... suspension ideas. I'm still reading so I should have something worked out soon. Any further frame critiques are welcome. Thanks for the help.
