But thereís a limit to how long our front-centers should be. Front-center is the distance from the bottom bracket spindle to the front wheel axle. The entire range of front-centers in a tri bike size run may only be from 570mm to 660mm, but this is a touchy metric. You can feel a pretty small change.

These changes donít happen in a vacuum; theyíre taken into account along with other elements of steering geometry, like trail, like the steering lever on your bike. But in general, more front-center means a more stable bike until the bike becomes unwieldy and hard to turn. But letís say your bikeís front-center perfectly suits you. End of story, right?
