First Ride: Yeti’s New SB150
@xeren: sounds like you are a size M. It's pure economics: most bikes sold are M, so if you're only going to have one length CS then you are doing it for that size. When you then put +5cm more to the reach on larger sizes but keep the exact same rear center it's like a different bike. Size M and XL are totally different bikes and it's not the XL that has the carefully thought out balance. Besides, short time bike geo changes are going towards whatever the latest rave is. Maybe in the long run we get better overall but the year-to-year changes are about maximizing profit by selling what the consumer thinks he wants.

I hope more manufacturers would address this. It seems like the CS is optimized for M size, which makes the XL way front heavy. At least have two different lengths - 433mm for S & M, and 443mm for L & XL. I have 448mm on my current size XL frame and it feels very good compared to other 'ultra short' CS's I've tried.

@jaycubzz: I guess we'll just forget about Finland too then, and Norway, and Iceland, and Greenland, and Russia, and Canada, and US (Alaska).

Ridden and Rated: 7 Long-Travel 29ers
Short chainstays are so 2016. Didn't you get the memo? It's all about changing CS length relative to the reach now. Short CS for small frame sizes, long for XL.

Inside The Tape: Red Bull Rampage 2017 - The Left Ridge
Looking down at the whole area from the top it looks like an alpine serpentine road, only thing missing is the asphalt. Maybe next year they'll pave the roads to make it EXTRA GNARLY.
