Plus it has a ridiculously steep seat tube angle. It's a good thing, I'm always running seats slammed forward. Frame designers seem to have figured out that people like them steep. The reach is quite par for the sizes.
The reach to seat tube ratio was what put me off the capra - to get the reach I wanted I'd need the large, but I'm not capable of riding a 19" frame. They're good for people with longer legs than I :huh:

Good luck with the bike.

fuck that's annoying. Not one photo of the NON-drive side bottom bracket area... I wanna see where pivots / what linkages (if any) are positioned. very remiss of vitalmtb, if you ask me.

ONE photo on their site looks to me like no linkages, single pivot/4bar type thingy, right?

It's a horst link design. In defense of Vital, they do state that it's a horst and it's pretty easy to see in the photos what it is. You're right, they don't show the main pivot but it is placed exactly where you'd expect.
