    Doing that kind of move on smaller gaps is actually a bit harder than doing it on slightly
    bigger gaps. It's all about the momentum/moving your body weight as you get into the swap, and
    if it's a smal...

    ... aside from the steep headtube angle, it's got a lower BB and shorter chainstays...The CS
    length is basically the same as the Console/Arcade/Iron (if you actually work it out for a gear

    And the answer I get is that "new geo bikes are easier on the rear"That isn't the answer you've
    been given. Frame geometry is a trade-off. If you make a bike have a super high BB so it's
    nicer to back...

    so that's wh...

    I assume they covered the rocks up like that to make it look a bit nicer and to fill in any

    weird thing to d...
