  • Here's mine if it's any use.

  • Rake means little, compare the trail.

  • Ho yeah it was the trail number, not the rake.

  • they did a remake i couldnt even start it.

    10 y late im getting into the polo geo rabbit hole. i have afew disruptive thoughts.

    why ni o one ever tried >75 headtube angle ? what happen when you have 76,77. obviously 95 would need a massive fork rake , but why not ? maybe front pivot would really feel like a saloon bar door.

    the trail is a cool factor but imo the headtube angle is the most deterining factor: 73 for small 700 bikes should be forbiden , just play 26" .

    most polo geo now are 74 or 74,5 ( 650b stolens for exemple , or la luce , or enforcers in size M - L )

    i tried one of these curved seat tubes one night and that was crazy. i think people judging a bike "too jack knife prone" might just be not very used to it but its just a very sensible steering ... compare it to xbox controller, you can play better if you can go from right to left with a shorter movement.
    here is a recap of the geo on my lightfoot, its a very low number in trail but also keeps rhe wheel flop minimal.
