damn, that's aggressive. so 79* ish sagged STA? curious how it corners with such a large front center length bias.
What's up with rear centre length not growing with front centre? I was excited by this for a long time from various insta posts. Now I see that the rear centre is 415.
It does. The three sizes go 415, 425, 435.
As far as the short head tube and stack, it does have a 180mm 29er fork... Not really sure how much more stack you need... ?
To the earlier post: back in the day I rode a 180mm fork on a hardtail and it was awesome. But that was nearly 20 years ago mind you. I'd for sure try it again now. But maybe with a modern fork 160-170 would be fine.
r.e. stack. For someone 6'7"? Still more stack needed. But really that person is the outlier. That little head tube is what makes sense for most people, on a 29er, with a 180mm fork.
Since they are made locally, and Chromag encourages customers to call them for support, maybe, if a 6'7 person wanted one, they could call Chromag and ask if it's possible to custom build a copy with a longer headtube. Might cost you a few bucks more but it will sparkbring you joy and according to Marie Kondo, that's the shit right now.
