The Zerode Taniwha Comes to the US
@Loamhuck: I think what is tripping the industry engineers out is how much the derailure on their standard bike is effecting suspension. The suspension feels a bit like a Megatrail which I owned for almost a year. Very linear and offers a bunch of traction on the ass end. Yes it doesn't shift well under load that is my main gripe see below.

The Zerode Taniwha Comes to the US
@Loamhuck: I am ZERODEUSA originally started importing Zerode in 2011. I got the LG just to have it and am now running a 50mm stem and at 6' 1" the bike is just too short for me and the XL is coming the end of june. LIKES 1. It pedals well 2. Has good traction do the lighter rear end over a conventional system 3. The suspension feels the same the whole way through and is pretty linear making it very easy to tune 4. The HA and BB numbers are good 5. Steep seatpost angle helps on the climbs and keeps the knees happy DISLIKES 1. Not shifting well under load you have to ease off (takes a bit to get used to) 2. The added weight of the box is another issue but I know it will come down over time. It's basically 2lbs heavier than an SRAM set up would be. It would obviously be a conflict of interest for me to test Zerode products hence why I have not done so over the last 5 years. That build above is almost the same as we do most of our bikes. Riding the grip shift took a few rides to get used to but no big deal. The range is crazy like 60 rear crazy I would never use those top 2-3 gears BTW.... may change the gearing up on next build.

The Zerode Taniwha Comes to the US
From Linkage Design.... " As you can see in the table excel and graphs the above system has the Zerode Taniwha pedaling efficiency flawless, with percentages of Anti-squat around 100% in all developments. A few years ago this meant a huge advantage compared to a transmission type 3x10 or 2x10 but today the operation of transmissions in a single dish is very close to these figures, yet we must recognize that the system is well optimized and a transmission type Pinion has some advantages, such as reduced unsprung weight, the range of developments, etc ... other parameters are fairly predictable: pedal-kicback (15 °) is maintained in a medium-high , as is usual in all models with good pedaling efficiency and Brake-Squat (103%) also stays at a fairly high level, as is usual in four-bar type systems. In the graph of Leverage Ratio see how the system is Linear-progressive type (2.7-2.2), a very good model for Endurance to 160mm of travel figures. The first section of the graph reduces slightly inicial sensitivity of the system, but today this problem is easily solved by using an air cushion or EVOL Debonair type or a damper spring (CC Coil Inline ...). As the damper Zerode uses a Fox Float-X of 216x63mm and in principle I think it is a very wise decision, is a buffer upper-middle range, with a very attractive weight and very popular as ... "

Fox's 29'' DH Fork... and Mondraker's 29er DH Bike?
@cwatt: Just put in KNEE high rocks in very steep portions of the trails and have those feed into off camber corners that are filled with basketball sized rocks. From there you enter the rocker garden that has rocks 36" and above for 700 yards......
