Review: Pole's 190mm-Travel Voima is Long, Slack & High
@HelterSeltzer: Pole said they believe a high BB rides better - I disagree. Also people say shorter cranks are faster/more efficient, supposedly.

First Look: 2023 Scott Genius & Genius ST
Good looking bike. I wish every company would publish axle path and leverage ratio charts.

It’s Time to Recalibrate Our Ideas About Chainstay Length
@rookie100: yeah, maybe not exactly those numbers but something like that. I just don’t think we need chainstay and reach to be equal.

It’s Time to Recalibrate Our Ideas About Chainstay Length
@adamdigby: he’s also almost 500mm reach. Assuming he’s 460 chainstay that’s 8% shorter. On my 450 reach bike 8% shorter would be 414 chainstay.

It’s Time to Recalibrate Our Ideas About Chainstay Length
@jlf1200: lengthening the chainstay moves the center of the bike backwards which would require more movement to properly weight the front wheel in corners. I think in general bikes are getting to long. I agree they should be proportional, but not close to the reach. I was referring to the article where he talks about chainstays almost as long as his reach. I had a bike with with 470 reach and 413 chainstays. I much preferred the super short stays on everything except super fast chunky stuff.

It’s Time to Recalibrate Our Ideas About Chainstay Length
I agree with the idea of proportional chainstay lengths but disagree with everything else. This idea of a “balanced” bike seems ridiculous. Our bodies are not equal length or weight balanced. Do you want to have a bike where you have to do the least amount of body movement to get down the trail? Your chainstays are 10mm short, then move your hips 10mm forward. You can adjust your riding style to fit a bike and it will feel normal after a bit. This feels like the trail building equivalent of making every trail a flow trail. Although with 450mm+ chainstays that’s probably all the bike is good for.
