Topic - Design and geometry of climbing frame/fork

anatso on 18 Aug 2013
I would appreciate feedback from dedicated cycling hill climb riders,experienced bike designers and manufacturers and hopefully from custom bike frame builders:
Which frame and fork characteristics do you recommend for a dedicated climbing bike in regards to Front/Rear- BB distances;chain stay length; total wheelbase; seat and head tube angles, BB drop, fork rake and overall trail measurements.The climbs are both long and steep and will require a quick-response bike, with accelerations while climbing .
As I will have a frame custom made, there is no need to promote any brand or make/model, but if you have specific recommendations,please base them on a 58cm frame for reference.
Thank you for any advice and input.
