Field Test: Kona Process 153 CR/DL 29
@Clarkeh: That would make sense but then you have builders like Pole so there sizes would be XXXL, and on ward. I don’t get why people are giving them so much crap for testing bikes based on reach. It just works! To anyone talking crap go get a professional bike fit(by someone who knows MTB). They will tell you where your saddle and grips should be located. Reach is prettt much this exact number as swat tube angle don’t vary much anymore.

Field Test: Kona Process 153 CR/DL 29
@islandforlife: reach numbers are the best we have as Mike Levy has pointed out. The best thing you could have is compare the contact points, but that is more complex. For example I ride a large Evil Wrecking and a XL V1 Following both bikes have nearly identical reach numbers. I run taller bars and 10mm spacers under the stem of the Following and they feel nearly identical. As long as the reach of similar stack bikes are compared it does work! You can not use reach to compare say how a Epic will compare to a Enduro because the stack will be off by multiple inches.

@Three6ty: Exactly! Thi is sweet test series! Clearly these guys don't compare geo numbers on there own. All of these bikes are designed around short stems and the manufactures listed sizes do not matter. For bikes with similar stack such as these reach is a great way to compare. For example the Evils 2018 bikes vs Yeti's 2019 bikes are about a size apart until the Offering was released and they stretched the geo out.

Review: Yeti's New SB100
I picked up on this as well! I have a played around with low offset forks on all 3 of my bikes(Hei Hei 29, Following V1, and Wreckoning). Only the 160mm Wreckoning seems to benefit from this lower offset due to increased cornering traction. However the climbing off all these bikes suffered when I swapped for the low offset fork. Climbing, slow tech riding, really anything under 10mph the bike just feels like it is not as persistence at these speeds with the low offset.
