Video: Laurie Greenland & Jackson Goldstone's Fort William Course Preview
Yeah I agree, that older section is much rougher than it looks, up to the deer gate its big rocks and big bumps, but after it's much more chattery.

Tech Randoms: Prototype Drivetrain Parts, Tires & More - Fort William DH World Cup 2022
@CM999: There are pros and cons to brake squat aka anti-rise. More anti-rise will keep the geometry consistent when braking, as the fork will dive, the rear will squat and the head angle will keep quite static, however the suspension won't be as active. Less anti-rise and the suspension is more active but the front of the bike dives more. I think most brands take a middle ground, where the suspension does squat to preserve geometry but not to the extent that it makes the suspension harsh.

@veryfastbiker69: I don't think everyone does, it just seems every review PB does of a bike with an idler they list it as a con, being noisy, draggy or needing more maintenance

Out of all of these bikes I think the RAAWs are my favourite. Such clean lines
