1 Question - How Long, Low And Slack Can We Go?
That actually strengthens my observation. Rider with short legs and long torso seem to prefer shorter reach compered to riders with long legs and short torso that prefer long reach.

1 Question - How Long, Low And Slack Can We Go?
I think the bike geometry should depend on your physical appearance and riding style. Take two riders with the same hight, one with long legs and short torso the other with the opposite. They should probably have different bike geometry. I for instance have long legs and short torso and I have found that bikes with longer reach suit me much better. That is kind of strange because I probably should prefer shorter reach due to my short torso but that is not the case. Until I bought my Kona Process 153 (L) I have always struggled with finding the right center of gravity. On my older bikes with the "old school" geometry (short reach) I was either to far back or to far infront. I got it right about just 5% of the time. With the Kona I´m right on spot 80% of the time. The large Process has a reach of 460mm and I think I actually could go for 20-40mm extra reach to get the optimal centre of gravity. That would probably give me the right amount of pressure on bought wheels 100% of the time. My conclusion is that ALWAYS try out the bike you´re buying. If possible try some other bike, with different geometry and compare. I believe that different bikes are optimal for different body compositions and different riding style. You just have to find what works for YOU.

What Are People Riding Now? - Whistler Closing Weekend 2015
26 vz 27,5 size statistic really surprised me. Thought it would be more equal.
