Opinion: Do We Need Size-Specific Chainstays?
Always love Seb's articles. But the weight given to the flat corner weight distribution is too big IMO. Thinking of BMX, chainstay length is a big part of the bmx handling. mostly for how the bike accelerate, pumps and gets airborn (think race bmx vs trail/street bmx). MTB is a mix of flat cornering, berms, jumps, rocks, .... Defining a golden rule based on grip or flat corners only/mainly is definitively not the way to define the single truth. It's the beauty of MTB geos, it's always a take on how you want the bike to handle and toward which riding style you push it. An Idea for Seb, take two similar geo hardtails with only CS length that change (XC vs dirtjump), go on a pumptrack (tires on the ground, not even jumping), and see how the CS affect the pumping rythm, super intersting comparison and this difference will be found again when you pump and push in a MTB trail.

Dave Weagle Patents High-Pivot Drivetrain System
It's different because the the tora has 0 anti squat as the second chinring is coaxial with the pivot. in DW's design the second chainlring is lower than the main pivot allowing to control anti squat and so pedaling efficiency. Same as for the starling shown in the article. Makes plenty of sense to me. what's new to me is that the claim is that we can finally get back to 2000's suspension performance to see bikes riding good again!!!
