Likes Bikes and Dirt
I reckon you were up at Eaton’s at the same time as me the other day.I know it looks odd but you don’t really need to worry about reach when seated. I’ve just gone to a ‘new geo’ rig (Trasition Sentinel) with the reach being 34mm longer than my previous bike but the effective top tube being 8mm shorter.
But its more than just that - the stack is higher and the top tube and seat tube much lower.
All combined it means that the bike is really comfortable when seated (because of the slightly shorter top tube) and i can move around on it with more freedom (longer reach) and it disappears beneath me when jumping because i now have a 170mm dropper.
Pretty cool how it all comes together.
BTW - sick bike @the drizzle . Will have to catch up with you and @TheAzza down at red hill one day
I saw your results on Strava.
What you riding now?
