    Low Setting ?

    Specialize now lists it's geometry for BB height, seat angle and head tube angle as (low setting). Does that mean with the bike in a sagged position? I actually asked our Specialized rep this question and didn't get an answer!

    is this for specific bikes? alot of the spesh lineup has adjustable mounts to change the angles

    Some bikes let you adjust the geometry. But sometimes Specialized leaves that "low" notation in their geometry tables even on bikes for which no adjustment is possible. Tell us which exact bike you're looking at, and we can better help.

    The geometry charts are for Stumpjumper FSR's

    I believe the "low setting" means the adjustable fork is in the shortest travel setting, thereby, affecting the geometry of all the angles.

    So far as I can see, none of the 2008 Stumpy FSRs come stock with adjustable travel forks. What you're seeing in the geometry tables might be a holdover from the days when those bikes did come with adjustable-travel forks.

    You're so right...I've seen stuff such as this on their site before. Probably a simple case of not updating the verbiage on the descriptions. Maybe they're always rushing to do those lunchtime rides that I read about.

    The same geometry template is used for all bikes. If the bike has high/low bottom bracket options the stated geometry information is while the bike is in its low bottom bracket position.

    And yes we do rush to the lunchtime ride, takeoff time is 12:15 pronto.
