• Updated :: Reach and Stack

    It’s the new way, apparently. Makes sense!

    See more here – http://www.sicklines.com/2008/12/18/reach-and-stack-a-good-idea/

    Centre of the BB to the top of the head tube – horizontal and vertical = reach and stack.

    You need a plumb bob.

    Here’s what numbers come out, unsagged on a Ragley mmmbop, Ti or Blue Pig.

    UPDATED ::(I got a new version of the very ace BIKECAD which gave more accurate dimensions).

    16in – 23in top tube, 73deg seat angle.
    reach = 390mm, stack = 576mm (140mm fork)
    reach = 378mm, stack = 584mm (160mm fork)

    18in – 23.5in top tube, 73.5deg seat angle.
    reach = 408mm, stack = 576mm (140mm fork)
    reach = 396mm, stack = 584mm (160mm fork)

    20in – 24in top tube, 74deg seat angle
    reach = 424mm, stack = 581mm (140mm fork)
    reach = 413mm, stack = 589mm (160mm fork).

    How is that an improvement? What about the effect of seat-tube angle on sizing? Or am I overlooking some “Eureka” factor with this method? :/
