    Diverge fit = sitting "in" the bike..

    So does anyone else feel like when riding the Diverge they are sitting "in" the bike vs. on the bike. I've got a Giant Revolt and a Specialized Diverge (need to sell one) On the Revolt, I feel "on top" of the bike, with the Diverge, I feel like I'm "in" the bike. Maybe it's the low BB, but feels weird. I like them both, but obviously can't keep both.. Any help will be appreciated..
    Get this thing off my head!!!!!

    With mountain bikes I prefer the sitting in the bike so maybe that translates to gravel. Low BB is always a win offroad too; at least in northern California.

    Yes the Diverge with a roadish BB and a tall head tube does feel sat in. I like it as that is what I ordered my own handmade bike to feel like. In is, for me, a better bumpier ride option that is less tiring over long rides.

    Old thread..new reply

    Diverge has lower position and shorter headtube than Revolt.

    See https://99spokes.com/compare?bikes=g...;*z.56cm|w.700

    Since Diverge sits lower, I would think it's better for singletrack and technical. The Revolt is more upright better on hard pack and tarmac.

    I'm thinking about trying both. Leaning towards Revolt.
