The GFGR Geometry of the 396 TR blends neutral handling with long front centers.  Our seat tubes have lay back so you can run a dropper post and not need to get way back behind the saddle when the going gets rowdy!  The 396 TR’s GFGR Geometry achieves your perfect riding position with one of the great dropper post offerings currently available with zero setback.

Evening riding with a 30.9 rigid post with zero set back has added benefit with the laid back seat tube design.  The position allows the seat post to flex more and improve comfort when things get bumpy.

Combined with the rear triangle design of our frames, these features make for a more compliant ride that transcends the nature of the frame’s material.  You will be immediately pleased by the quick acceleration and awesome tracking of our frame as you rip down your favorite single track.  The rider first approach of the frames GFGR Geometry will place you in a comfortable ready for for fun position.
