    I know bike weight is talked about a lot when it comes to climbing, but what about geometry. Is there a specific wheelbase, seat tube angle, etc etc. that is supposedly the best for climbing?

    Thanks

    Yup. It's the geometry on the bike that's most comfortable to you.

    Not best for climbing but best for you, having the bike fit you. If it fits, you are 'fit', have reduced fat on you, and ride/train smart, you will climb well.
