Jfsy 29 short reach 425 Jfsy 27 440 like Troy.

(but what I really like is the bb drop)

Interesting, non-boost rear end.

Non-boost front, but boost rear, I think.

Producing a non-boost rearend isn't feasible for complete bikes anymore, the "standard" seems to be established widely.

My DT Swiss hubs can be converted apparently to fit, refreshing.

Must be a typo all are boost except for the Pro.

If I were to guess, it would be the decreased BB drop on the 27.7 model requiring a different location for the pivot to obtain the desire anti-squat values (also affecting the anti-rise ones as well) for a 150-160mm bike.
Wonder if the axle path'll be curved like Capra or straight up like Jfsy 29.

Thanks. I measured my actual inseam as per the competitive cyclist video and it's 31.5inch. I did some rough and dirty measurements using my current trail bike and I'm not sure the 480mm seat tube on the large Jeffsy is going to fit me with a 150mm dropper, unless the Raceface one has a pretty thin collar. It's gonna be close, within an inch for sure but might be too high at full extension... the question then becomes will a 125mm dropper get low enough for descending.

I'll shoot Dave a message as I get all my bike work done by him anyway, coolio.
