DESIGNED FOR RIDE VERSATILITY:
SEAT TUBE SIZE - OUT THE WINDOW:
Frame sizing has changed. MTBs were always sized on seat posts, however stack and reach are a much better method. With the invention of the dropper post this has be come more important. If you are tall in the torso then you need a longer reach. If you like to sit up a little then a taller stack and shorter reach is more important. The dropper post means that the seat tube length is less important as the seat post can be dailed in at your handlebars. This is why I have gone for a set seat tube length.
