Video: Cody Kelley's Riding is Next Level
The bike is about as linear as you can get. Also, bikes that are regressive in the first part of their travel have a firmer initial stroke for a given sag/damper tune through midstroke, so you might have things confused.

The New Craftworks ENR v1.1 High Pivot 160mm Enduro Bike
Don't worry, you're not raining on anyone's parade. VPP bikes don't do that. Here's a quote from Santa Cruz's website: "unfortunately, describing an axle path as "vertical", the classic "near-vertical", "s-shaped", or "rearward", is an over-simplification of the suspension system. It's also dead wrong. Santa Cruz once published a postcard showing the axle path of the original V10 as being "S-shaped". It was misleading and technically incorrect, and we apologize." Bikes with a normal drivetrain all have a very similar wheel path - they have to, they're limited by where the chain is. They're very very slightly rearward for the first bit of travel (think 2mm total over maybe 50mm of travel), then the wheel starts to move forward. At bottom out, the wheel is invariably in front of where it started. This includes VPP. The Craftworks is substantially different, with a very rearward wheel path. Almost 50mm total. It rides very differently to a standard drivetrain bike.

The New Craftworks ENR v1.1 High Pivot 160mm Enduro Bike
I'm 180cm tall with normal proportions and a 150mm KS slammed against the bottom of the insertion depth in the large 1.0 frame was the right height for me. Definitely worth paying attention to if you want a large drop or if you have short legs.

The friction isn't noticeable and it's pretty quiet. I rode one for a week or so, that had already had a good amount of miles through the drivetrain. The lower guide reduces the chain growth on the bottom side of the drivetrain and helps save your derailleur clutch. Derailleur works fine over the full cassette, just like any other bike.

The New Craftworks ENR v1.1 High Pivot 160mm Enduro Bike
@WhiteroomGuardian: I've spent a bit of time on the 1.0 for the review in NZ Mountain Biker Mag. I didn't really notice any drag in the drivetrain over any other trail bike with a full guide, and the performance of the suspension when pedalling is so dialled that I'd be choosing it for climbing big technical climbs over any other bike north of 130mm, personally. I've got the 1.1 arriving in the post in the next few days. My biggest gripe about the 1.0 is that it wasn't long or slack enough. The 1.1 in large looks perfect. I'm excited.

@deadmeat25: Watching you get so worked up over something you're completely wrong about is hilarious.

Brand name is spelled wrong every single time you wrote it. It's whisky not whiskey.

Day 2 Photo Epic - NZ Enduro 2019
Kudos to everyone racing!! Having ridden Nydia very-slightly-moist, I would not want to race it wet.

I hate to break it to you, but most of the things you call bolts are actually screws. Google "socket head cap screw".
