I've heard the term "frame geometry" before, and how different ones are better for different types of riding, but it's never explained. I'm assuming it relates to the angles of the tubes of the frame. But how does that affect riding performance?
I have 2 bikes: an old hybrid with no shocks that rides smooth, and a mountain bike that rides much rougher, and has front shocks. Both are chrom-oly. The angles of the frame's tubes seem about the same on both bikes. Maybe there's some slight difference I'm not seeing.
Can someone give me a simple explaination of how frame geometry affects riding comfort, and what angles to look for if I want a bike that doesn't make me feel the jolt of every bump?
