- Any short arses ride a 29er?
avdave2 – yes, but only when measuring standover at a point directly beneath the nose of the saddle. I can straddle a Solaris fine there, similar to Soul, but if I slide forward towards the stem, which is where i often stumble in my inpetitude dabbing on rocky stuff, the Solaris is 2 inches higher than the Soul, even with 20mm shorter fork.Posted 4 years agoiaincSubscriber
mattjg – what I mean is that riding them is fine, but when I’m scrambling around a scottish mountainside, with lots of on, off, stop, start etc, the crotch clearance when not actually riding is a problem for me. As I said earlier though, horses for courses. If I was riding different terrain I’d have gone for the Solaris – more compliant, better distance covering, soaks up some of the stuff better.Posted 4 years ago
