We've definitely gotten to an interesting point with geometry where a bike can ride almost too well in certain situations. I doubt we'll go past 77-78° on the seat tube, and I think that's even pushing it a bit. Head tubes are pretty set now at 64-65° for Enduroing™ (with the requisite short offset fork) and 66-67° for normal trail riding. Add some long reach and a moderately low BB and viola, you have a bike that rides really really well. My only concern would be efficiency for climbing, which seems to be echoed by the current best climbing bikes not having most extremely modern geometry. "That's the perfect analogy, where the bike is Forrest Gump, and I'm the exploding leg braces." This made me smile. I always enjoy your reviews Dave.
