The Guy Who Designed Chromag's Doctahawk Hardtail Explains Why It's So Long & Slack
Something about the weld points on the press BB being wider than on a threaded BB enabling the chainstays to sit wider apart for greater tire clearance.

The Guy Who Designed Chromag's Doctahawk Hardtail Explains Why It's So Long & Slack
I live in your neck of the woods and have ridden long forks in hard tails before to good effect. I now have a Geometron G16 so I’m definitely on board with this type of geo. Could you elaborate in point #3 about chainstay length being a bigger factor for climbing a FS than a hardtail? I’ve stayed away from chrimags because 415mm chainstays are unreasonably short for a taller rider. But your bike is much longer.

Chromag Announces Doctahawk, a Super Aggressive 180mm, 29er Hardtail
You need that to offset the steep seat tube angle. In practice it probably fits a lot smaller than that number would suggest if you're comparing against a bike with a 75' STA.

No you don't. Geometrons and Poles are in this geometry range as well (the hardtails too) and they climb just fine. Now might be a good time for, you know, a test ride in real life.

Pretty sure the PF standard allows the chainstays to be welded wider apart to accommodate big tires and shorter stays. Now if people would stop asking for such short stays maybe we could return to threaded BBs.
