Review: BMB Reverse Raise Stem - The Stem That Wants to Change Mountain Biking
I like the idea of a higher stack riding position. I had been riding my S4 Stumpy Evo with the stock 35mm rise bars and max spacers under the 40mm stem at ~20mm of spacers. I often felt like I wanted to be more upright, in particular when I am on long gravel forest road climbs which are common in my area of Western NC mountains. I went to a 60mm rise handlebar and it didn't' feel too high with the same spacers, then tried a 80mm rise handlebar with the same amount of spacers and noticed it was hard to get low over the front wheel on machine cut trails. I am currently settled with the 80mm rise bars and taking out 10mm of spacers bringing my stem down and forward a bit. I have no detriment to climbing steep technical trails that I notice, and the position is great for descending steeps and climbing long moderate gravel roads. To each their own but experimenting with fit can be beneficial.

Dave Weagle Patents High-Pivot Drivetrain System
Totally the wrong direction for bike development. Some company needs to take the Tesla approach of relentless simplification, improvements and cost reduction. I don't think adding these components needed for a high pivot design and their benefits are worth it. For an e-bike, sure as it is already more complicated, plus a gearbox drive integrated into the motor makes sense and will probably be coming soon. That would make the high pivot design even easier.
