Yeah - it's real.   I tried going to a 30t from 32t on a horst link bike before and it moved the line of force below the pivot and the suspension became noticeably less active while pedaling (one of the reasons I like horst link bikes) and I could feel kickback that was not there with the 32t (also not normally felt on a well done horst link design). FWIW I am on my third horst link bike with a brief time on a faux bar and the faux bar was noticeably worse in terms of braking and pedaling over rough stuff (New England Rocks and Roots are great for testing suspensions).
