Yeah, I am talking about the length of the chainstay. Maybe it's just marketing BS? How much softer will the bike feel with less than 2.5% increase in the seatstay?

If you're talking in relation to P-R, then it's not so much about comfort as stability.

If it makes no difference, then we should all use longer ones. Everything fits easier, less angle on the chain, no need for the shaped seat tubes - all around better bikes. - TF
