I think good geometry does more than most folks give it credit and also that no amount of flex in the frame material of your uni-pivot bike makes up for the braking characteristics for which other similar uni-pivot bikes have been shit on for 20-years. I think the je-ne-sais-quoi performance factor is you and the beyond-a-thing qualities that you put on the bike.  Not saying that isn’t awesome, and the bike isn’t awesome, or even that it wouldn’t be the best bike design for most riders (I think a lot of folks have bikes that are over complicated for their needs) but no shed magic or material is going to change the basic nature of how it works. And how it works may be the best compromise for some terrain! Certainly wasn’t my goal to debate the best choice is suspension platform. That’s why I structured this around carbon flex-stay back ends.
