Ok, the rear triangle of a bicycle is supposed to be stiff. It's two bits of triangulated metal structures welded together, that fact that some of those tubes are not round is going to make eff all difference to anything.
so tube profiles are irrelevant?

where's that picture of Luc Picard slapping his forehead when you need it…
'rear end flex' in a hard tail is mostly about the top tube bending just in front of the seat tube. it's not the rear triangle, that ain't going nowhere on any hardtail, flattened seat stays or not.
Fatter tyres run at a lower pressure, stand up, I beam saddle, sometimes a carbon post can take the sting out…otherwise, enjoy the directness of knowing where the rear tyre is all the time…

@ NickC so the curvy seatstays on cannondale roadbike and other frames are not designed to allow some vertical compliance in the rear end thus giving a more compliant ride then, Hmmmm????
No they are not, they are designed to make folk believe they are.Posted 9 years ago
