i have a 20.75 in tt at the moment and am thinking of upgrading
I am a thin 6'2" 150lbs male. Ive pedaled around on a 21 in, seemed to fit well, but is the 21.25 gonna be better or worse than the 21 in. ps. looking at the envy. looks sick as hell

21+.25=21.25

THAT WAS HARD!!!
The frame will feel a quarter inch longer, think before you speak.

well, going from a 20.75 to 21 won't be that drastic, but from a 20.75 to a 21.25 will be a decent change. it will probably take a little longer to get used to, but if you feel the need to get a 21.25 then go for it!

the size you "need" is more preference, as opposed to height matters.
however, the general trend is, tall person-long tt, short person-short tt, etc.

trying out a 21.25 couldn't hurt though.

I'd say go for it. I'm about 6'3'' and ride a 21.125, feels good.

screw it, im going with the same 20.75, i like to spin anyway. And ya im skinny, but all muscle. Doesnt help when your mom made you a Crack Baby. really, really cant say i turned out all that bad, bet i could muscle around just as good as the rest. Strength is no issue here, i never said how can i make my bike lighter, i said longer.

I'm 6'3 and ride a 21, fits good
I also run 8.5 bars, it helps put less strain on your back, might get a topload and slam my stem too

i have a 21.2" frame feels really good, before that though i had a 20.6 and that was pretty horrible. so happy i changed!

If you are 6 2" you need big bars like everyone else has said, feels so much better!
