When I get comfortable with a trail, it's time to ride one with bigger jumps.

No, Avy would still only need the damper. The difference is you wouldn't be sending in the spring too.

Burning Question: Is Super Boost 157 Spacing Going to Become the New Standard?
The great thing about "standards" is that there are so many to choose from. It's a very compact oxymoron, being only one word long.

First Ride: Promising New Suspension Design From an Unlikely Source
Because it is waaay too late to patent a single pivot swingarm. That said, I do like how this seems to facilitate shorter chain stays.

Or you could move the IC upward, for a rearward axle path, get even better bump compliance, and use both chain tension and propulsion force to combat squat. (And add a high lower-chain-guide pulley to mitigate chain growth.) All I want for Christmas is my Canfield Jedi minus the upper pulley, minus half of the rearward axle motion (but FFS keep half of that rearward travel) minus 20-40mm travel, and minus several pounds. Why nobody does this is a mystery to me. Is there some terrible disadvantage that I'm not seeing? Even Canfield dropped the rearward motion for their Enduro frame.

Suspension Travel - What's Your Ideal Amount? - Pinkbike Poll
The real question: Do pinkbikers believe that the industry has discovered the ideal travel for these classes of bikes? And the answer is clearly yes. Most of pinkbike believes that suspension travel increases are the history of mountain biking, not the future of mountain biking. I'm pretty sure we'll have 180mm enduro bikes and 220mm DH bikes in a couple/few years. Same for the other categories.

I was thinking pretty much the same thing. Apparently everyone thinks bikes are done evolving. I expect that in a few years these will seem 20mm too short, in every category.
