BTW, does anyone actually swap between the different settings? I noticed it makes quite a big difference regarding the chains length... If I'd make the chain sufficiently long for the slackest position it would be pretty loose in the tightest one?

I keep mine in the shortest setting as it suits the short tight tracks I race (& ride)

Ride mine in the short setting usually, but have been going to the long setting for Whistler and Silver Star. Haven't noticed a difference with the chain. Getting that little washer in can be a PITA

me too, I put it in the middle setting for Silver Star this past weekend but I've never tried the longest one.

I think I don't notice the chain so much because when it's in the longer setting it's on the faster stuff and I'm usually in smaller end of the cogset.

You should try the long stay length. Feels like its "on rails", unlike any bike I've ridden. Even with the squirmy DH 16 tyres I'm running.

Been playing with it a bit at the megavalanche this week. Started off in short and steep, which pretty much matched the geo of my old Turner, but tried the middle position too. Definitely better cornering, although definitely at the expense of crank clearance - cranking flat out down the rocky fireroad at the top of the qualifier course I clipped a crank on a rock and got pinged off into a 30+mph faceplant...

If I'd have thought about it I'd have done some runs on the Oz DH course in full low/long mode too. No pedalling there!
