Freeride's Alive - Riding the 2020 Yeti SB165
Chain stays are too short hence front wheel washes out on flat corners, the Geo is not balanced...

Rachel hurt herself on the flat landing of the final drop / step down into the finish area, not the long jump fly off.

Martin Maes Tests Positive for Masking Agent at EWS Rotorua & Tasmania, Receives 90 Day ‘Non-Intentional’ Suspension
This is really rubbish - this season EWS men's competition is now ruined for all participating and following IMHO. Such a shame a bit of common sense couldn't be applied here.

Video: Vorsprung on Understanding Advanced Bike Geometry - Part 2
@VorsprungSuspension: Yes I would agree that the short bike was probably too small (although not by old Geo sizing standards :) ). I am 6'1" tall but with monkey arms which I think also explains why the XL Patrol fits me well. I've not yet ridden a bike yet that is too long for me I suspect... I'd be interested to try a longer bike like a Geometron but I do think that there is such a thing as too long and my current bike is probably about right.

Video: Vorsprung on Understanding Advanced Bike Geometry - Part 2
Really interesting conclusion, I understand the logic but I have found the opposite. I moved from an older style "short" Geo bike to my current ride which is an XL 2016 Patrol and found that I got much less tired as the correct riding position is far more natural. On the shorter bike I felt too upright so putting weight through my bars felt really awkward and pushed my backside too far back behind the saddle. Now I can be in a much more relaxed overall body position due to the bike fit and have more weight through my hands as I can adopt a flatter riding position, at least that's how it feels... confusing!
