2. GeoMetron 13 – The aggressive one
Price: £2,450 frameset (incl. shock)
Chris Porter, the founder of GeoMetron bikes and until recently the owner of famous suspension service centre, Mojo, is somewhat of a mad professor when it comes to boundary-pushing geometries. His beliefs and findings from testing all manner of extreme geometries – angles, lengths, widths, wheel sizes etc. – are combined with the expertise of German brand Nicolai in crafting some of the most progressive, and also reliable, bikes on the market. This 29er 130mm-travel beast is made for speed.
