Geometry is free! But you’ll never make everyone happy... I wish the rear center was 15mm+ longer. I’ll get into that more in my review but wheelbase really is the new headangle. Hopefully I did an okay job of presenting where the bike delivers value at its price but yeah - especially for a bike being sold without a shop’s local expertise - you’re going to get a range of customer mechanical and riding ability... The grips scare me, the saddle pisses me off, the lack of tape on the rims is cheesy, and the brakes are going to get replaced by anyone riding this bike to the potential of a long travel 29’er. For someone looking for the bones to build an awesome bike the $2800 (USA) + upgrades could deliver an awesome machine for the money (especially doing all my own wrenching) but trying to ride it stock has its frustrations.
