Neat story, beautifully told here and in the video. Just moved to Scotland from California a couple mos ago (MTB hasn't gotten here yet)--looking forward to exploring those islands.

@ Pinkbike, aren't you glad you humored us by doing the Huck To Flat again?? Trust our journalistic sensibilities! Thanks for weeding out the "prototypes."

Pinkbike Poll: The Great Chainstay Debate - What's Your Preferred Length?
@zyoungson: The higher the bb, the higher your center of mass is. The higher your center of mass is, the less stable you are front to rear, because you have a longer (taller) lever working against the rear axle (which is the pivot point). A longer wheelbase and longer CS add stability by bracing against that leverage. A longer and lower bike is a stabler bike. That's why trials bikes have ridiculously high BBs--you don't want it to be stable, you want the bike to respond more to your movements.

Pinkbike Poll: The Great Chainstay Debate - What's Your Preferred Length?
Spoiler alert: the most popular answer in each height group is 430-435. The average preferred length does skew slightly longer in the taller groups. One factor I didn't see when skimming the comments is the interaction between chainstay length and BB drop. A taller BB will exaggerate all the negative characteristics people are ascribing to short CS. (The relationship of interest is BB height relative to axle height, not BB height from ground.)
