Visual Bike Geometry Comparison
« on: November 14, 2018, 08:56:26 pm »
Hey all, we just added a visual geometry comparison view to https://99spokes.com that uses the size and geometry information from the manufacturer. This makes it easy to see the main geometry differences at a glance.



Here's an example comparison - https://99spokes.com/compare?bikes=kona-process-134-se-2018%2Cnorco-fluid-fs-7.1-plus-2017%2Ctransition-patrol-nx-2018

Any feedback is appreciated.

Thanks!

Didn't we have this visual geometry comparison before? I'm sure I remember somebody posting something extremely similar if not identical.

I'm impressed.  It's got exactly none of my bikes on it.  Even the weird ones with the pedals in the middle.

It listed my bike. I thought I'd compare it to some of the bikes I was considering when I bought it.  Unfortunately, it didn't have any details for my bike (why list it?), and when I put in the Cannondale Synapse to compare it to, it gave this picture:

I'm glad I didn't buy that bike!

We've added the ability to specify a custom bike geometry in the comparison view, or adjust geometry values from bikes selected from our database. Please check it out and let us know what you think!
