It’s Time to Recalibrate Our Ideas About Chainstay Length
@Svinyard: Wild - had no idea. Appreciate the heads up... Will tinker with spacers and report back.

It’s Time to Recalibrate Our Ideas About Chainstay Length
@ZSchnei: Can't say enough good things about the Top Fuel! I had no idea stack height affected cornering that much - will move a few spacers around and see what happens. Thank you!

It’s Time to Recalibrate Our Ideas About Chainstay Length
"Stability"/handling characteristics cannot be as simple as the chainstay length and reach: I ride a M/L 2022 Top Fuel and an S4 2021 Stumpjumper EVO. Chainstay lengths are 435 and 438, and reach numbers are 465 and 475, respectively, 465 for both if you factor I run a 10mm shorter stem than stock for the EVO. Almost exactly the same on paper. However, I corner far better on the Top Fuel than the EVO, especially when entering tight and steep berms. The EVO's rear wheel will fight me to lay it over into the correct plane to match the turn - to the point I am considering trading or selling the EVO frame to try something else. Doesn't seem like the difference should exist, given the similarities in geo. It is incredibly noticeable. EVO feels like it has 470 MM chainstays - on climbs and descents. Something else is at play other than the chainstay length. What is it?
