 I keep talking about how longer stays make for a more stable ride up and down. they pump better too. sounds like you found a bike that suits you personally. Sweet!

 I've been on super short stays and I could ride them no problem. But this long bike just feels better.

 it's ridiculous man. I sold 160 bike 3 year ago and bought 125mm bike to get a bit faster when pedalling and climbing, but this thing is faster. It is more stable, has longer chainstay and thanks to that I can focus more on modulating power while pedaling. It's a compound effect of bike, Ryan Leech's balance course and James Wilson's traning program. Shit just clicked... I never climbed so comfortably. And I have 950g tyre on the rear with relatively hard compound.

 Maxing out modulation and descents are very short around here so no use for power. I will be taking 203mm to the bike park.

 @simooo: I am doing something wrong and I think bike is magnifying it. I have little problem on my HT DJ, but on this one I am leaning to the right side all the time. If it was some flexy alu frame it would be eventually understandable but on this one it is impossible. Got to train them manualZ
