I'm looking at some bikes, and I can't demo them all. I am looking at the geometry of trail and XC bikes and wondering how they compare to my current bike in terms of ease of getting your butt 'off the seat and close to the rear wheel' when going downhill.
The 2 important parameters to determine this are tob tube length and head tube angle, correct? See the link below for illustration.
If my current bike is:
tobtube length=580 mm, headtube angle= 70.5 degrees,
and i'm comfortable going downhill on it, i'm guessing i'd be pretty comfortable with ease of 'ass of and behind the seat for downhill' on a bike with:
toptube length =595 mm and head tube angle =69 degrees?
Also looking at a cross country bike with tobtube length=594 and headtrube angle=71 degrees.
