Strange to have rear centers so short (for how long the front centers are in the bigger sizes). Besides my personal experience with longish front center : short rear centers on big frame sizes, I also recently heard Jess Melamed talk about that in a Pinkbike podcast from a while ago. He mentioned that all his bad crashes have been from cornering, and that when he’s tired, pinning it in a race, he needs the bike to corner naturally and neutrally, trying to weight the front wheel through your hands isn’t happening in those cases.  Too big of a front center/short of rear center was a problem for him a few season ago, and he sized back down, as well as the rear centers grew on the newer Rockies Mtns.
