Counterpoint: We Need Suspension Lockout Levers
You make against your own point here. You site high pivots with idlers...which have inherent antisquat (not due to chain tension) and low chain growth, which allows the suspension to move freely. There you go, no lockout needed for efficiency, and a suspension that allowed to operate free from the effects of chain growth. No lockout needed, just solid suspension design and well though out kinematics Oh, and some people travel quickly on flat terrain...where good suspension action AND efficiency are needed at the same time.

First Ride: Norco's 2020 Revolver Cross-Country Bike
I want one of these. I had an old version, built with an F34 120mm and Reverb that came in at 24.0 flat, with real tires, I simply loved that bike. This one looks even better...wish it fit 2.6" rubber though. Even so, I will likely pull the trigger on one of these.

First Ride: Norco's 2020 Revolver Cross-Country Bike
Agree entirely. I remember the day I saw my first $5k GX bike...it was crazy.

@JohanG: Yep. But people just because it's a 34mm stanchion...

@js11: And probably much pricier builds...I'd guess the AXS version is sub 25 with dropper.

First Ride: Salsa's New Spearfish and Horsethief
Well done Salsa. I had a previous generation Horsethief that was a very good bike. Used it from everything from Enduro to XC and Stage racing with some great result across the board. It just needed some refinement in the execution. I think that these are a great next step and have my interest.

Good Month / Bad Month: Racing, Affordable Carbon, XTR, Illness & Injuries - January 2019
I like my eagle setups. But they are highly sensitive to flexible and/or fragile derailleur hangers.

Lee McCormack's Guide to Bike Set-Up
For years, I've recorded the stack and reach of each of my bikes, along with notes on my perception of fit. I found that there was a "pocket" of space where the bike felt just right. This assumes that the seat tube angle and length allows positioning of the saddle in the correct position...the only time this was an issue was an extra slack ST angle created by over-forking a bike. If the bars were Forward or Below the pocket, it felt too big. Behind or Above, and it felt cramped. Also noted the measured wheel weight distribution front to rear of each. 60/40 seemed the best for XC. 65/35 the best for descending....
