Chris Porter has long been known as one of the earliest and most vocal proponents of the longer/lower/slacker trends in mountain bike geometry, and his Geometron bikes have pushed the envelope further than just about anything else out there. But Chris has opinions on a whole lot more than just bike geometry, and in our recent conversation we got his takes on wheel sizes, eBikes, suspension tuning, Vladimir Putin(?) and a whole lot more.

  1. I know we’re all supposed to get along, but I particularly enjoyed the evisceration of eBikes. Because of all the reasons mentioned, but especially the value for money of a motorbike in comparison to an eBike.
