Stack and reach are the most important measurements for assessing the size of a bike. In cases where the bike brand has not provided stack and reach, it is difficult to assess the bike’s geometry. In cases where the stack and reach are not provided, Bike Insights will try to calculate an approximate stack and reach based on the known attributes.
