Pinkbike Poll: Where Do High Pivot Bikes Make Sense?
One thing I wish HP designs would do is use off the shelf idlers from Sram or Shimano, so the bikes can still be serviced in the long term if spares dry up. I know smaller rings have efficiency losses, but as in the article, what's an extra percent.

It amazes me what they can do with only an extra 100mm of travel.

Pinkbike Poll: Riser Bar or Extra Spacers Under the Stem?
@jostaudt: With most bikes averaging 65 degree head angle, adding a 10mm spacer decreases the reach by about 3mm. Additionally, as you raise your stack, your torso also becomes more upright, which reduces the needed for a longer reach.

Pinkbike Poll: Riser Bar or Extra Spacers Under the Stem?
@shredddr: Decent point, but as the bar height increases, out torso also leans farther back, which shortens the reach we need. That's why, with downhill bikes having long axle to crowns resulting in tall stacks, they have slightly shorter reaches compared to trail and enduro bikes.

Pinkbike Poll: Riser Bar or Extra Spacers Under the Stem?
My problem with high rise bars is that I roll bars far forward to suit my ergonomics. With a high rise bar, rolling the bar far forward alters the reach drastically. I've been considering that Yoshimura stem that has the direct mount bolt pattern, so it's easy to add additional spacers.

First Ride: Race Face Releases New Era & Turbine Handlebars
I roll mine far forward, we all have different wrist ergonomics. I have 12 degree backsweep bars, and after measuring on my bike, the upsweep is 12 degrees and backsweep 5 degrees. The measurements are flipped! They must be rolled forward more than 40 degrees. I always setup my bar for when I'm standing up for descending.
