More U.P. info - Geometry
Gerard Vroomen - 27-Apr-2015
As promised in the last blog about the six most commonly asked questions about the U.P.
, here is the info on its geometry:
Keep in mind that the seattube is designed to be offset, so that your seatpost doesn't have to be. This saves a bit of weight. It also means that the toptube length appears a bit longer than the frame really is, yet another reason why toptube length is a bad measurement to rely on. Best to check stack and reach for that.
As you can see, the chainstays are quite short for a cross/gravel bike, despite the ability to fit the massive 55mm tires in. That's one of the benefits of the dropped drive-side chainstay.
If you have any questions about the geometry or would like me to give you advice on which size would best fit you, just go ahead and ask in the comments below or shoot me an email.
If you want to make sure you get all the info on the U.P. as it is released, be sure to subscribe via the orange box on the top right of this page. I'll say it again, don't rely on Facebook to hear about our releases, because those are designed to make you miss most of our posts unless we pay them, and we don't want to pay them to reach people who have already indicated they want to hear from us. Twitter is also not that effective but that's another story.
