"Bottom line, the Spectral 125 is not optimized for climbing" Not true. As you said yourself, it lacks a certain "feel", but that doesn't mean it's not actually good at going uphill, depending on conditions. Sure, something with a high\[er\] anti-squat is going to feel quicker on smooth trails, but that can come with a lack of traction when powering up rougher trails. Maintaining traction is a pretty important part of climbing, I'd go so far as to say something tuned slightly more towards being active and maintaining wheel contact with the ground is quite optimized for off-road climbing.
