Pinkbike Poll: The Great Chainstay Debate - What's Your Preferred Length?
@Primoz: Ideally you shouldn't have to focus too much on consciously weighting your front wheel. A more neutral position is ideal for stability and balance. Look at someone like Sam Hill, he rides a medium nukeproof mega (450mm chain stay, 1197mm wheelbase) and the part of the reason he is able to keep such a neutral position is because his bike is so well balanced. Ideally much longer bikes like the bigger sizes of Pole bikes should have even longer chain stays than 450. If you go too short with the chain stay your front wheel will wash out easily, especially with a much longer cockpit. I think a Pole like front center combined with 420mm chain stays would create a ridiculously unbalanced and difficult to ride bike.

Pinkbike Poll: The Great Chainstay Debate - What's Your Preferred Length?
@yzedf: 5% is quite significant though when it comes to weight distribution. On an 860 front center, the fc rc ratio of the 425 vs 445 chain stays would be 2.02 vs 1.93. That difference would only decrease slightly on smaller front centers.

@thuren: The wheelbase is what you should be comparing, not the reach. Regardless of the reach, head angle and fork offset affect how hard it is to weight the front wheel.

Why care about any bike tech? Why not just buy a $150 Walmart bike?

How tall are you though? What matters is proportions and bigger bikes are proportionally going to have shorter chain stays most of the time.
