Regardless, they aren't in business to lose money. Make what the current market demands and you'll stay in business. Make what the loud minority wants and you'll be out of business.

The PR has been updated to reflect the wheel size more clearly.

I think it's a wise decision on Privateer's part from a number of perspectives. It's a race bike, first and foremost. They are also giving the majority of riders the wheel size that's most popular in their size. The company can...more

@Jackhill, you realize that, on a long wb, low standover, big reach, high stack height bike, there is absolutely no reason to get your buttocks behind(and below) the saddle. Get low 'in' the bike, not in the old school style, behind the saddle.

What dropper/saddle are you using? I have a one up with a ergon saddle and can get 40mm in front or behind the clamps. Similar with a reverb and a giant contact dropper. some saddle combos might reduce that fractionally but that is still a lot of adjustment? I have a p3 size privateer, with the saddle back 25mm on the rails I have the same saddle to bars as on my large strive which had the saddle pushed forward 25mm. The position does feel a bit different as you are more central over the BB.

How many countries outside of UK and USA still use imperial units?

While roads are still measured in miles everything else in the UK has been metric since 1965. Imperial units are poop.
