Modern geometry at its finest! At first glance, the geometry of the Rover might look a little different and that is because it is, slightly. The reach numbers are longer than comparable bikes, but because the seat angle is steeper, the rider’s body position doesn’t feel longer. Take a look at effective top tube numbers as you analyze the geo chart. We have put countless miles on the Why Cycles R+ using similar geometry and we are convinced it’s the best for all around gravel bike shredding. Longer reach, shorter stem, steeper seat angle, short(ish) chainstays- it is very similar to progressive mountain bike geometry, and it works. This configuration eliminates the dreaded toe overlap while still leaving the bike playful and in control when the going gets rough. It puts the rider in a comfortable, powerful position. The sizes are true to standard- if you ride a large in most brand’s bikes, you’ll ride a large Rover.
