This is a short chainstay.

A short chain stay makes the bike feel twitchy. Spins will be easy, but airing and jumping might feel hard to control.

A long chain stay will make the bike feel really controlled. Spins will feel sluggish, but manuals and air tricks will feel nice because it will be more stable.

C: Head Tube Angle: 75.25° – Learn About Head Tube Angles Here

A less steep head tube gives you more control.

D: Seat Tube Angle: 71°

F: Stand over height: 9.25″
