Commencal Releases Updated 2021 Clash
Interessting. The only Commencal with an ABP-like (or split pivot) suspension has been replaced by a linkage driven single pivot.

@pakleni: Tolerance for aluminium frame can be bad too: concentricity, roundness or shear could be affected either by welding or machining. Nicolai use the same machine to surface the frame and cut the treads on both side of the bottom bracket. I am not sure this is the usual way to proceed.

You can move even further than a wheelbase ... Some trials riders are able to drop from an obstacle like this! I am not so good at trial, but I can already go further than a wheelbase. You need to move your hips backwards and slightly down, lift your front pedal a little up and maintain pressure on it. Then as soon you start a pedal kick, you need to extend forward and slightly up. The pressure on your pedal helps to lift your front wheel, and your hips generate the forward motion

Katz Bikes Returns With an Enduro Bike with a 'Maintenance Free' Drivetrain
I prefer when Swiss brands hide things. At least when it comes to Redalp.

Enginerding: What Is Anti-Squat & How Does It Actually Affect Mountain Bike Performance?
Years ago, I had a single pivot bike without linkage that was designed for a big chaining (around 42t) but I switched to a much smaller one (around 36t, can't remember exactly). On slow big drops (a step after a turn), due to the linearity of the suspension, the KB was pretty high (deep in travel). It was horrible - even more due to a hub with a lot of engagement points - as you want to absorb as much as possible in this kind of situation. So I think Antonio is right, most of the time is not so relevant, but do not forget that there is a person on a bike that should feel confident.

Enginerding: What Is Anti-Squat & How Does It Actually Affect Mountain Bike Performance?
@phutphutend: To me, neutrality is definetly wrong. Riders need feedback. An obvious proof is the first generation of BMW telever, that the german company had to refine because most people had difficulties to know how much their motorbike brakes. This lead to some crashes. Also changing the mass load of the bike can have some advantages like giving more grip to the front tire and slightly reduce the wheelbase before cornering. This is typically used in moto GP.
