If im gonna be stuck with a single pivot, it might as well be a high one.I know what bikes you have had and enjoyed.
That's quite a statement.
As for driveline resistance, the issue was raised in the PB comments. It seems like a legit thing to either confirm or dispel. I can't think of a better man than TB to do so.
Totall agree, feedback on this is much appreciated (but must admit to not caring enough about idler drag to keep me from buying one)
