SRAM EX1: Does ‘E’ stand for ‘Everyone’ - May 18, 2016, 12:08 p.m.

I think it's a great idea and would try it out. As long as the top 3 or 4 gears are spaced correctly (that's where you spend most of time in climbing mode). I don't think you need steel cogs if the chain line is good. I got almost 5 years on a XX 10 speed cog.

I think the same could be said with the geo chart.

how it feels on trails is pretty subjective but I can understand where you are coming from.

I look forward to your review Dirk… It would be easier to plug the measurements into the software and then it does everything for you. I'm curious how your graphs will compare to

Good points Nat. As long as the measurements are accurate, I think the information is as useful as geo numbers. Does anyone actually measure/compare the geo numbers stated from manufacturer?

Yes… I do love graphs and geek out to suspension stuff. I'm just advocating the use of his graphs just like a geometry chart. I completely agree about his conclusions and maybe I should have been more clear in my original statement. I think it's just added useful information to the reviewers subjective feedback. Just my opinion man but I do like the two person review.

Every bike review should have a link to so you can see the actual suspension kinematics of the bike instead of marketing jumbo. This will add to rider impression. This is just as important (some would argue more) as geometry. I'm really surprised no one is doing this.

This user has good basic info on suspension kinematics:

Great to see all the time Drew has spent in the Specialized wind tunnel paying off… enduro tucks in the corners ftw!

how many of the top Enduro riders are running plus size? just as I thought…

Nice job hitting the big gapper on BD!

Where is the weight on this thing? All these add-ons make 2x more likeable if you need gear range plus 2x will give you a proper chain line. Add in Di2 and the complexity is nil.

lots of stunning visuals… felt like a BBC nature video with David Attenborough. I'm more inclined to watch the below filmed on an iPhone with an emphasis on bike skill than trying to win an Oscar on cinematography… but I'm just a GOF.
