Not as bike porny as the 10K builds but much more useful for 90% of readers. Good job PB

@daweil: ymmv. IME a highly progressive frame paired with progressive air shocks (those featured on the builds) makes using full travel near impossible. Just think its easier to tune in you preferred progressivity if you don't start with something with a whole bunch built in progressivity.

Nope. AS is well below 100% even with the new and improved curve. Sorry for adding to your confusion. PS check out https://www.youtube.com/user/andrextr if you want some easily digested info on sus design.

AR curve and values not presented bc as a dual short-link is probably still quite high which will mean more sus movement impediment if on the brakes. A quick glance at other propains on linkagedesign.blogspot.com also suggest the AR is high. LR curve looks fine, but this marketing BS that bikes with more progressivity work well with both air and coil shocks is utter nonsense. A progressive LR curve with a progressive (air) shock makes for an ultra progressive combined force curve and you'll never get full travel if you've set sag properly. I personally think we mere mortals don't actually benefit from the latest trends in increased progressivity, but if they have a pro team that needs to race this then what evs. Be honest with yourself and your riding abilities and if you aren't CAT2 or better then put a coil shock on there. AS values bumped up but are still too low to be called efficient under pedaling. That and the curve itself doesn't make any sense (you want lots of AS in your pedaling zone, not rising AS out near full travel). Generally seems to follow AS design principles similar to Knolly. Prioritize traction and let compression levers take care of the climbing efficiency, so make sure your shock comes with a compression lever and be ready to have a remote for that lever if your trails are characterized as undulating and not just up then straight back down The upside of that AS curve is super low PK so you never get that feeling like your pedalling effort spikes with every bump it hits but i only ever can perceive that phenomenon on bikes with >20 degree PK values and this is likely som where down in the single digits. Geo numbers look nice (though CS numbers are a little long for the current fashion trend) and the bike is real purty.
