    How about more info on yourself, like height, weight, terrain preference, and anything else that would matter

    get a Koxx cheat code. it's a great starter bike that will get you ready for longer geometry... like the levelboss. if you don;t need a seat, get a levelboss. if you are short they make a 1040mm and 1065mm wheelbase.

    here's the cheat code

    lol.. Why do cheap bikes have inferior geos? Is it cheaper to make the BB lower? Or the chainstays longer. One would think that shorter chainstays would be cheaper as the tubes don't have to be so long. :rolleyes:

    P.S: Yes. I know they do it to make money. But still... :down:

    I spent a few months on a cheat code. Would rather ride that than a woodman...at least its manual-able.

    Well, I think it actually may be more to make shorter stays because of the yoke involved. To clear a big tire 1 or 2 cetimeters behind the BB shell, the yoke has to come WAY wide WAY quick. I know some bike companies can't do this at all, but maybe the real cost in short stays is the start up, so they can machine the yokes and what not... I dunno?
