I've stared at that gif for far too long and you just sent me down the path again, haha. I believe the change in my legs is more to do with the position of my C.O.M. in relation to the pedals. The cranks on my bike are shorter than the Evil—the G1 is 165mm and the Evil I believe is 175.  I'm definitely pitched further forward, which is the point. More upright so that when the trail goes up, I'm in a better position to climb. Lee (of Lee Likes Bikes) had an interesting article or two several years back about shorter cranks. I don't remember his final findings if there were any, but I don't have an issue with the shorter cranks on this low BB bike. But I've been riding 165 cranks for years now and am used to it.
