Video: Mike vs Mike: Geometry Battle - Specialized Stumpjumper vs EVO
Hey @mikekazimer, curious we didnt really get to a common agreement. Do you agree that by putting yourself in the traditional bike fit position that the seat tube angle does not play a role in defining that position and by following the newer bikes with steeper seat tube angles and putting your riding position more forward you could be putting your knee into an unfavorable position for bike fit? Thanks

@mikekazimer: totally agree and understand that but your body can only be in one position if you are fitting your self to the traditional bike fit positions like knee cap over the pedal axle when the cranks are horizontal, ball of your foot over the pedal axle and knee angle of 140-150deg when pedal is at the bottom of its stroke or 1.09xinseam for saddle height. Seat tube angle has no play in this body position. To move the body forward to follow the seat tube angles for a better climbing position you will likely be violating one of the above aspects possibly putting your knee into an unfavorable position for fit. Maybe i am missing something.

thanks for the response @mikekazimer. I have been doing bike fits my self just filming myself on a stationary and pulling the videos onto my computer to get the pick up points and measurements but am maxed out on the seat rails. Might have to go to a setback seat post. But yeah i am finding out 77deg is too steep for my body geometry and will have to take this into account on the next frame. But my original question which i didnt phrase very well now reading it again. You guys mentioned in this video comparison and is mentioned many many times in bike reviews all over the internets that the steeper seat tube angle helps with climbing. I assume that people are saying this as they are actually moving their bodies more forward with the steeper seat tube angles which helps position you to better manage steeper climbs but maybe also putting them into an unfavorable fit. If people are putting their seats based on proper bike fits the seat tube angle should not make a difference unless it hinders you from getting to your position which seems like the situation i am in. So i guess in the end my question is people must be running their seats more forward than maybe ideal with the steeper seat tube angle if they are taking advantage of the forward riding position for climbing. are more and more people finding knee pains due to this? the main reason why seat tube angles are driving steeper and steeper is cause we are moving to 29ers with longer travel and larger size/volume tires. We either have to make chain stays longer, change to rearward axle paths or go to steeper seat tube angles or a combination of all to make everything package. I think the claim of the steeper seat tube angle for climbing is really more just a cover up to the inherit design of the bike. Thats my theory at least. Thanks
