Geometry

5 posts in this topic

I have been looking at the other sections on this forum and i see a lot about the geo of frames,the bb height,chainstays etc etc.

What is the difference between them all.Is it a personal thing about how you like the feel of your bike.I know that the there would be a differance between a street frame and a natural comp trials frame

With bb height,Is it the same on a mod bike as a stock bike?Are they similar in any other way geometry wise?

thanks

It's best to find out for yourself. Go through a few frames and parts and you'll start to understand what each angle and length does for you.

Just try different bikes with different geometry and you will soon get the hang of it. It's mostly about how you want your bike to feel, most modern bikes are somewhat similar so there's no way to say which existing geometry is best.

Worst part about geometry is that you can't isolate any single measurement. Say you would like to keep the wheelbase but change the head angle. Then you also change the reach...

the two bits of geo youll notice is the wheel base and bottom bracket hight. like tgs bikes usually hvae a lowish bb hight and a long wheel base other wise comp bikes have a short wheel base with a high bb rise, feels short and flicky. my expieriance. :)

tgs stocks are normally high bb, although saying that, most of the natty bikes are getting high bb as well
