I Tai Geometry













This is a really good link to help understand bike geometry. I'd never realised that Italian road bikes typically have a lower B/B and hence corner better. I always thought that legendary Italian bike handling was a bit of a myth to do with 'romance' and 'heritage' rather than anything tangible but now I think about it my old Bianchi Pantani special was a very sweet handling bike.
