Living the Dream: David Rosen's Flow Motion Titanium Hardtail
@duzzi: Here's the long version for you: Ride enough bikes and one or two degrees is readily apparent. We try to run the saddles in the middle (at least to begin with) to accurately assess the bike's geometry. The point, however, is that rear suspension compresses when climbing and accelerating and is affected by static sag (most riders use 30% rear and 20 to 15% front. all of that slackens the effective seat tube angle. A hardtail's seat tube angle actually becomes slightly steeper as the fork drops to sag, and while it can be argued that the fork extends under acceleration and also contributes to a slacker seat tube angle, the change is minimal because of the distance between axles and its minimal sag.

Meet the Stance: Giant's Affordable Big-Wheel Trail Bike
The rear stays do have to flex in order to compensate for the arc of the rocker link. The designer, however, can minimize that flex by carefully averaging the arcs of the swingarm and upper rocker to the point where its effect is so small that it will not stress the frame. It's a nice trick.

First Look: Mondraker's F-Podium Brings Forward Geometry to XC Racing
I agree that the depth of the women's XCO field is many times better at present - technically and physically. The greater differences in times between the top ten finishes, however, is the point I am making here. The closer the times are, the more accurately it can be judged whether there is an advantage to a new technology, or riding technique, and the harder it will become to overcome a disadvantage. We can see this beginning to occur in the women's field. - RC

Interview: Catching Up With Aaron Gwin & Supercross Legend Ryan Dungey
@jewpowered: Exactly. The vibe was casual. They were joking around like they'd known each other for years. Dungey is one of the most down to earth racers I've met. The recording would have been a good listen. The trailhead was alongside a busy highway, so there was too much ambient noise..
