Review: The Pole Machine Has a Serious Need For Speed
I can't fathom riding a bike with a chainstay that long. I like to pop small gaps, transfer from side to side of the trail, and manual without planning 30' in advance.

sngltrkmnd not making longer stays yet, as it's working perfect for the current frame size(470mm reach), but if I make a 500mm'ish reach bike I will lengthen the stays a bit for sure.

The Eyecatchers 2019 - 6 New Bikes That Stand Out From the Crowd
Pretty shocking surprise to be scrolling down the page, and to see my bike! Thank you so much! Rear swingarm redesign molds were just paid for yesterday, and hoping just a month or so for the new test unit. New rear swingarm version looks much better, will be stronger, let me raise the BB 8mm as it was just TOO low, but hell no not lengthening the chainstay at all! The short CS is a critical part of the design. Perfectly tuned coil shock to eat up the shop and outweigh the stability drawbacks of the short CS, slack HA for the steeps, but still super poppy and and can change directions in an instant with the short CS.... If the desire for the bike grows, the larger sizes would have a proportionally longer CS though, as for riders over 6'2" or so, 413mm CS would admittedly be a bit short.

@panaphonic: On off camber or flat, loose, slippery ground, like that turn noted, too much weight on the front MAKES you loose the front end....

Val di Sole 2008, I'm betting Sam Hill wanted less weight on his front wheel, not more......

Lee McCormack's Guide to Finding the Handlebar Width Sweet-Spot
While I agree with a lot of whats being said here, I think the calculations need to be done off shoulder and arm length, not height. WAY too universal.
