I never did any kind of dynamic rise comparison, wouldn't know how to even if I still had a long swing arm.
My feeling was the overall rise was about the same only gentler (slower - damped by leverage) through a smaller arc.
That was the zero sum theory.
It is interesting to hear someone elses perception, thank you.
My bike is slow but the earth is patient.
