Added a comment about feature Modern Mountain Bike Geometry Defined - Transition Explains Effective Top Tube Versus Reach 1/16/2015 2:57 PM

Great article! However, Ive come to a different conclusion. I still find ETT as a more important number that REACH for trail riding. I size and fit my bikes for riding over 2 hours. That means seated riding. As much as I enjoy riding gnar as the next AM guy, and I DO, I dont care as much about leaning here or there a bit to get comfortable while standing on the pedals. But when I pedal to the top of the trail, which I DO, I need a good fitting cockpit to avoid back problems. My saddle position will change marginally due to seat tube angle as my saddle is always 32.7 inches from the pedal axle. Any difference can be chased with adjusting the saddle, use of an offset seatpost, slightly longer or shorter stem and rotating the handlebars. As for REACH, like I said, I can lean forward or back with my whole body. That probably gives me at least 4 inches of flexibility. Reach is still important, specially so for a DH bike, but not as important as ETT on a trail bike.

You are correct in that it is not inherent to this system. I was pointing out my own experience in doing chainring swaps and not criticizing this system in particular. As it is, changing tires to go to the bike park is enough of a hassle for myself to buy a park specific bike

I do like the directly mounted chainring system. It looks good and light.

The chainring swap isn't so simple. You'd have to changed the chain too. Either have a spare chain for a bigger ring, or cut into the chain to add links.
