Yes, my bike is too light and doesn't feel squishy enough.

Wow, just because you can make something, doesn't mean you should.

Those wheels gotta have some CRAPPY lateral stiffness. 3 pivot joints won't offer and lateral strength. Better make sure you have LOTS of tire clearance.
Nothing like adding huge amount of rotating mass right in the middle of the wheel. For the meager price of $2000! You could get a Fox or Rockshox air fork for less than $1k. It would be far lighter and perform 100x better.

Rather than have to use something like that, I'd prefer to be dead.

Too much vertical compliance. I can think of other circumstances where this may be less than desirable. :blush2:
