with this I can't fully agree (scientific yes but any.. no). Many professional bike reviewers draws conclusion about bike compliance based purely on a subjective feelings. I want do this too but back it up with some sort of data measurements. I agree that I can't say based on my methodology exactly how much less vibrations a particular bike part generates but I can say in general that data supports my subjective fellings or not. I can also agree that with things like tires with inner tubes vs tubeless (small differences) my methodology is probably not enough (and maybe I will not be testing such things in future or change the way of describing the results) but my methodology totally shows that for example shockstop stem really mitigates a significant amount of vibrations. And this is all I want to know...
