This is a super short frame. It will feel incredibly snappy and responsive.

C: Head Tube Angle: 75.7º – Learn About Head Tube Angles Here

Steep head tube angles make the bike “snappy” meaning more responsive to fast turns.

A less steep head tube gives you more control.

D: Seat Tube Angle: 71°

E: Bottom Bracket Height: 11.65″

F: Stand over height: 8.65″

This is a medium standover. A medium standover gives you more control with barspins and t-bogs.


There is a reason that this Cult 2 Short frame is so popular. I see them all over, and they seem to last really well. Cult has a good reputation for making good parts that people love. If you are a shorter rider, looking for a super snappy and responsive frame, you will love the 2 Short.
