    Question about frame geometry

    I've just purchased a 19" Kula Supreme online, and have a couple of questions (Bit of a noob when it comes to bike geometry):

    My current bike is a Full Dynamix R4.0 with a 100mm Manitou R7 fork, and it has this geometry (Size: L):



    (I ride with a 90mm stem instead of the 120mm that is listed)

    I'm planning to use the same fork on the new frame, will this be ok?
    What difference in riding experience between these two frames will I notice most?
    And what is the seat tube length of the Kona?

    Thanks in advance.

    Your geo chart does not include HT angle or wheelbase among other things , this makes it impossible to draw any comparisons .

    Hmm...ok. I will try and contact the manufacturer to get these dimensions, and then post them here.
    But I see on the Kona site that this frame was delivered with a 80 mm fork, will it be ok to use the 100 mm fork instead?

    This might help a calculator. Adding a longer fork will lengthen the wheel base and slow the steering (like a chopper). It will also raise the bottom bracket by a few mm which will make the bike a little less stable at speed.

    The Kula was designed to run a 100mm fork so you're good.

    What difference in riding experience between these two frames will I notice most?
    Dunno

    And what is the seat tube length of the Kona?
    19", same as your old bike.
    No moss...
