S&M Tall Boy Frame Geometry

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is geometry.png

A: Top Tube Length: 20.75", 21", 21.25", 21.5" - Learn what size is right for you here.

Mostly in the taller range for tall riders. This frame is even available in a 21.5" which is really hard to find.

B: Chain Stay Length: 13" - Learn About Chain Stays Here

Medium length chain stay. It provides a good balance for control and responsiveness.

C: Head Tube Angle: 75.5º - Learn About Head Tube Angles Here

Steep head tube angles make the bike "snappy" meaning more responsive to fast turns.

A less steep head tube gives you more control.

D: Seat Tube Angle: 71°

E: Bottom Bracket Height: 11.8"

F: Stand over height: 9.2"

This is a tall standover. A tall standover gives you more control with barspins and t-bogs. But makes whips harder.

Conclusion

This Tallboy frame is for tall riders. Imagine that. The geometry is designed to help taller riders feel more comfortable on the bike. If you have a style like Charlie Crum, or you are over 6' feet seriously consider this bike.
