I'm debating between a SJ120 expert and a Yeti575.
I understand the SJ120 bike uses a legit horst-link design where the rear pivot is in front of, and below the rear drop out. Is this correct?
I also have read that this creates the affect of a fully active rear susp during braking. My issue of concern is that I don't want my next bike to be like my current single pivot xc bike. My bikes susp gets very hard during hard braking or braking during rolling down stair- step type drops. It feels like a hard tail at times.
What's your impression on this bikes feel when braking or at any other time for that matter?
I know it climbs well, how does it handle the downhill stuff. Is it an improvement on the 4inch version or just more of the same bike?
