I think the industry has gone too long (front centre) to add stability without lengthening chainstays and the cranked seat angles (effective) to shorten the seated position so they’re still rideable. True for any sized bike / rider. Maybe longer limbs make it easier to compensate for a bad fit but universally CS needs to grow on average. If chainstays grow then we’ll get the same stability out of a shorter front end, and coupled with new sizing (Specialized S1-S6 is a great example) more riders will find themselves on a better fitting bike. I think we’re saying the same thing?
