    It is an oval part that connects the seat stay to the shock rocker. You can rotate it 180 degrees to make the geometry of the bike steeper.

    On Devinci's website they list the geometry for both positions.

    What happens if the geometry is steeper? How does it do on decent?

    It makes it slightly less prone to going over the bars. The trade off is climbing stability.
