i can't imagine that bike climbs very well with that geometry, especially steep/tight terrain. stem length itself has a big effect on climbing performance.

So they had to exaggerate the turn down on the top tube to lower the stack height? What a load of bollocks, they could have got to the same point with a straight top tube! Just get rid of the hump!

looks like Fisher's Genesis geometry from back in the 90s

If I think about the space the Mondraker is covering ground with the frame rather than the stem. Being a tall guy that's always had longer frames I cannot believe more frame is better. Longer tubes invariable lead to more flex. How is this a step in the right direction?

just slap a nice wide seat on it and go ride the seawall at stanley park. the geo looks like one of those bikes that your grandparents would ride..

seriously tho. having a short stem like that and having the bars so high it looks like you have a better chance of looping out off things. theres like no room to pull the bike into yourself over bumps/jumps when your trying to suck it up. that right there will make your body weight be further back and giving yourself no room to pull up.
just doesnt look right at all…
