Forward Geometry on the 2013 Mondraker Summum - 2013 Downhill Bikes at Eurobike 2012 - Mountain Biking Pictures - Vital MTB

For those unfamiliar with the Forward Geometry system, it's essentially a frame with a longer top tube and shorter stem than one would normally ride. The overall cockpit length remains the same, but the wheelbase grows a substantial amount. This is a benefit in many situations, especially on wide-open DH courses.

    And at 6'7", I could run a forward geometry frame with a 50mm stem and feel good.
