    2013 Beargrease Vs 2014 Beargrease

    It seems like allot of buyers (including me) of the 2014 carbon Beargrease have been owners of the 2013 aluminum Beargrease. My first impressions are it's just as good as my old one. I was able to sell my old one after riding it for a year for $400 less than I paid for it so it was a no brainer to upgrade. I really wanted the thru axles. Weight seems to be the same or heavier but will get better when I get the tubes out and change out a few components. What seems to bother me is my XL seems smaller than my old one. Does anybody have (or have a link to) the 2013 Beargrease geometry chart? I'd like to compare it to the 2014.

    Let me google that for you
    Dude that took me like 10sec. Enjoy your new ride!!

    Edit: effective toptube is the same, stack is very close, wheelbase is also very close, and headtube is 10mm longer on the 13.

    Thanks, I searched before I asked. As I suspected. Shorter chain stays, steeper head tube, and shorter fork lead to a shorter wheelbase.

    The 2014 has a 2.5mm longer wheelbase. You need to look at the charts a little closer, you have stuff mixed up a tad.

    I would love to buy a 2013 Beargrease frame. If there's anybody selling one drop me a PM.
