    Bike geometry database and comparison

    Hello all

    This is a shameless plug to tell you about a website I built with a friend

    It's called geometrygeeks.bike and it's a big database of bike geometry.

    We've got over 4,500 bikes at time of writing and it's growing every day, because anyone can add one. We've tried to make it as easy as possible to add a new bike with some clever geo table extraction magic.

    You can use it to compare two (or more) bikes side-by-side. Not rocket science but we hope it's useful.

    If you like it, or if you don't, drop us an email and tell us. It's a spare-time project but we're constantly working on new things and it's good to know what y'all find useful.

    Best,

    Bob

    PS full disclosure - we carry (a few, hopefully unobtrusive) ads and if you click one we stand to earn some pennies to pay for the damn thing.

    I used it a couple times when I was searching for old geo, like to a Bronson 2013, since a friend is looking to upgrade. Sites are removing their archived geo tables, so something independent like this is a valuable resource. Bookmarking!
    We're all on the same ship, and it's sinking.

    Props on the website. That said, all of this geo discussion going on these days is kinda ridiculous. The bike industry has done a masterful job of constantly marketing new geo to entice us to go buy a new bike. Damn the bike world is getting nerdy!

    Thanks all, glad it's useful!

    And yes, I completely agree geometry can be over-thought... 10 minutes on my singlespeed Chameleon from 2009 yesterday and I'd forgotten all about how steep the head angle was and how cute those tiny 26" wheels are

    THIS IS VERY COOL!!!!

    Sometimes a bike spec online doesn't really list everything; I kind of have to look at the back end and see if the seat stays line up with the top tube or not to see how the geometry is. This site is a bit more scientific lol.

    I just added two bikes, manually typed in my main bike. Very cool.
