@Sycip69er: Nice work making up an issue so you could whine about it.

RiDE Creatives Shows Off Unique Gearbox DH Bike Concept
My first thought was, this is exactly what I'd expect an Unno with a gearbox to look like.

Review: BMB Reverse Raise Stem - The Stem That Wants to Change Mountain Biking
So having had the misfortune of reading through the two manifestos you posted here, I'm left with a few questions. 1) With the testing feedback of the stem causing a lack of weight on the front wheel, your reply appears to be that you should not only not try to apply pressure through your hands but to even pull up sometimes, and to only apply pressure through your feet. Those approaches must necessarily apply less pressure to the front tire, only exacerbating the issues described. Can you concisely, please, articulate why riders don't need pressure on the front tire and how that benefits handling? 2) You mention that fundamentally this product is for riders that already use a technique that lends itself to this product. Truthfully, I can't imagine trying to ride a normal setup with the techniques you've tried to describe. Do you not think it makes more sense to take the money used on this product and invest it in lessons to ride properly? Like, we're treating the symptoms not the cause here.

Field Test Review: 2024 Pole Onni - In the Eye of the Beholder
@baca262: Are you ok dude? Like seriously. Because from where we're all sitting, it seems like either your mom finally told you to move out of her basement and you're having a mental health crisis, or you're actively having a stroke and just typing random words. Don't be afraid to reach out to a friend or a hotline or whatever.

Field Test Review: 2024 Pole Onni - In the Eye of the Beholder
@polebicycles: Awesome, thanks for sharing that! It's definitely fiddly to reverse-engineer stuff especially with a unique linkage like you guys have. I will say that with a high res photo, a more standard linkage, and visible pivots, it's not thaaat hard to reproduce a company's published plots. The problem that I was having was getting the software to let me attach the upper seatstay pivot and upper link to the shock yoke in different places - its not quite a 4-bar but also not a 6-bar linkage after all. Anyways, your charts show a much lower, and much more reasonable anti-squat value than I was getting, which is great. In lieu of that explanation, do you have an idea why the reviewers here felt there was poor sensitivity at the beginning of the stroke? Again, I really appreciate the data transparency!

Field Test Review: 2024 Pole Onni - In the Eye of the Beholder
@baca262: Awww did somebody get butthurt that someone disagreed with their nonsense on the internet? I'm sorry... if we had known you were such a sensitive snowflake we definitely would have all agreed with you and given you lots of upvotes and told you what a big smart boy you were.

Field Test Review: 2024 Pole Onni - In the Eye of the Beholder
@baca262: One of us is trying to read into the review and make assumptions, and the other is using a bike suspension design software to understand what the frame is doing, so feel free to not declare absolute facts. We also know that if your wheel is moving and your hub isn't engaged, then pedal kickback does not occur - this is helped by using the coarse engagement hubs they've specc'd

Field Test Review: 2024 Pole Onni - In the Eye of the Beholder
I'm having a bit of a hard time getting the Linkage X3 software to set up the suspension design for the Onni, but from what I can get out of it, it seems like the Onni just has really high anti-squat values that get higher in smaller gears. I imagine that's where the harshness comes from. I couldn't find a chart from Pole on their kinematics, but that's what I can deduce.
