You just have to redefine clean lines. Clean for a ht is 100% perfect...clean for a xc dually is 80% perfect. On my dh bike clean is 40% perfect. I can plow through a lot of stuff. This would make my times faster though. But I am not racing

I realize thats a simple way to look at it but imo its pretty close
