    Comparing bike geometry - a thing we made

    Hello!

    A friend and I built a website that lets you compare bike geometry side-by-side. It's here: geometrygeeks.bike

    It's a wiki-style database with over 1600 bikes now, and growing pretty fast. If your bike isn't in it, you can add it. (If you're a manufacturer/distributor, get in touch and we can bulk upload.)

    We got a bit tired making spreadsheets to keep track of potential new bikes to decide which size would fit best, especially when no two geometry tables are laid out the same way, so we made this. It's very much a spare time project for us.

    Why am I posting here? We're always looking for feedback to improve... what works? What doesn't? What do you like, and what would you like to see?

    Cheers!

    Bob

    First two bikes I entered came up empty. Colnago C-59 and then a C-60. Gave up after that.

    Thanks for the work.
    I Wiil be crawling the database to see if the market has any variation, or all 5894 frames have similarly unsuitable steering tube angles. Like the MTBs that have thrown me over the handlebars the last couple of years when a bump yanked the wheel sideways.

    @Trek_5200, turns out the geometry tables on the Colnago website play nice with our copy-paste import tool, so I've added a handful from the 2017 range. You can see them here, including the C60 range. (You have great taste... one day I will own one!)

    @everyone - The database is mostly built by our users adding their own bikes and those that interest them, so it's a slow but steady process. The site is only 4 months old and we're waaaay ahead of our expectations already. Thanks to those of you who added some today

    That's handy! I compared some of the bikes I've owned with some I currently own. Very interesting stuff.

    Awesome work, I was using an excel file comparing my frames just recently. This is great!

    Your site is excellent.

    Think about adding Canfield bikes.

    Your wish is my command... I've added a couple here: https://geometrygeeks.bike/search?q=brand:Canfield

    Their geometry tables work really well with our copy-paste upload feature. Try it!
