Yeah, their geo shows 72.9* effective from BB to the Effective Top Tube location where the measure the angle too.
Their notes below shows 72.5* Actual STA and the need to run a zero offset post. Its sort of the MTB problem again, and some means functional saddle height may impact actual fore-aft range differently.
Could play into bar reach issues as well as weight distribution too for taller riders with the more slack angle. But thats a guess without a deep dive in CAD along with some fore-aft analysis.
Hi! Last week I did some sketchy gravel downhills at 60 kph with a bar bag, I didn’t notice any speed wobbles and haven’t had any before either. I don’t know what is the reason for them, but I find the fork very stable.
Comparing to a cx bike I had before I don’t think the BB is too high, for me Seigla feels like a fast and nimble bike which is also super steady in corners. The tire choice will maybe affect a bit too.
I think it will do as well as a adventure bike as a race bike, I did a 300km day a month ago and next week I will do European Championships with it in Belgium. It is a great bike, the best I’ve ever had
Thanks, I think they will be S-Works Pathfinders (42 mm). Good rolling and good grip for a semi slick tyre. I got a new pair of them very cheaply from bike-components.de. For me they have been very durable. I have now about 3 000 km with my older pair with zero issues and a lot of long rides, the longest was 512 km all the way to the arctic circle from my home this week I will build another pair of wheels to my Seigla, they will have 29x2.2” Racekings.
