Cool exercise! As another 40's rider who has a lot of love and nostalgia towards steel hard tails, I feel similarly torn on the Darco. I'm the target demographic but I'm not sure I like that. Haha.  In the mismatched rifty photo, I can't help but notice there looks to be almost zero BB drop. That's one of the main things throwing the comparison out of whack imo. BB height on that thing looks sky high? One of my favorite things about short travel bikes is that the bottom bracket height stays within a smaller window, dynamically vs statically, so it can be, on average, quite low, which personally I love even with its tradeoffs on the shore.
