I’ve not spent much time thinking about extended rear centres, hmm. Oh great, here I go. Down the rabbit hole. I do know that with most bikes I feel like I’m wheelie’ing everywhere as soon as it’s slightly uphill. It’s not until I really weight the front wheel that it starts to balance out again. The typical answer to this is to get a bike with a steeper seat tube angle. Problem is, when I demo those my saddle is jacked up so high (820 mm) that it’s looks completely ridiculous. I need a steep seat tube, long rear centre, long seat tube and a high stack. I guess I need to go custom one day. Or does someone make this dream bike?
