Stanislav (Fort Wayne)'s custom Marino

Note the extreme amount of seattube offset where it meets the bottom bracket! This bike has what i would almost call a "negative turning radius", meaning it can turn circles so small that you'll prolly fall off before the bike gives out! It sits back nicely because of the offset, also allowing Stas to keep a shorter reach on the bike (though in my opinion a little too short). Even with all the custom Marino's out there lately this is still a pretty unique design. Luckily Stas was happy to share the geometry with the rest of the poloverse!

TopTube 544mm
SeatTube 500mm (Center of BB-Center of Top Tube&Seat Tube)
HeadTube 140mm
ChainStays 363mm
Standover Height 784mm
BB Height 285mm
WheelBase 943mm
Weight 25.6LBS

Thanks for sharing dude! Glad you let me photograph this beautiful bike! Perhaps you'll give us all an update some time down the road?



  1. Great Photoshoot Zach! Thanks for such clean shots.

    I enjoy the bike a lot but after this weekend (MW10), I think I would enjoy more of a higher BB height and just a little longer reach so that being sad...
