These Cascade links are specifically to vary suspension kinematics and progression. The G1's adjustments are for geometry. edit 1: I don't think that's how people are using these adjustments. No one is like the terrain is too tough I better increase suspension leverage by lengthening my chainstays. Changing kinematics is a byproduct of fit and TBH adding 3mm of chainstay probably isn't noticeable suspension-wise. edit 2: Same with the travel settings. If I choose to use the travel settings now all my settings are off and I have to find another spring to maintain the same feel. So yeah the kinematics change as a byproduct of changing travel not because that's the goal.  It's fair to find it odd that people find that local bike designers are dumbing down their kinematics so much that the bikes don't work well here. I'd be curious to hear what the folks from Forbidden think about this link and why they didn't just go this route in the first place. They're pretty clever.
