It's not as plush as you might imagine. The frame is quite stout, so I don't think there's any appreciable vertical movement from the long chainstays. The long stays DO provide quite a stable, smooth ride, however: when you hit a speed bump on a normal bike, you get two bumps in quick succession, on this bike, it settles down for a moment between the bumps. Bumps don't seem to upset the chassis as much.

Of course, with the big tires on there, they do add a noticeable degree of plushness. Really overkill for my road and path riding, so I backed down to 48mm tires lately, which will also ease fender installation.
