I'm about to order a Fit Wi-Fi tomorrow off Albes. Do you guys think the geo is a little weird or perfect ? I'm 6'2 and around 220 lbs. It looks like it has a real short back end but a steep headtube. Do you guys think it would be awkward to ride with me being so tall and riding such a short back end ? I tried the S&M the shorter one (think it was the BTM) and it felt pretty good. The guy at my lbs was telling me the short back end would be great for dialing tailwhips and I would have quick response. What do you guys think ?

you might feel pretty unbalanced on it, short rear end and a long toptube(im assuming) so maybe pick up a fit frame with longer chainstays

I'm thinking something alittle more stable/ balanced.

Try a Cult frame, i rode a deathrow for a year and a half with no problems.

13.55 rear end and 75 headtube, and large tt sizes.

But its all prefercance, you might like a quick twitchy bike. I'm guessing you wouldnt though, who knows.

Do you think it would make a difference ?

I'd be going from this:
Toptube: 20.75"
Headtube Angle: 75°
Seattube Angle: 71°
BB Height: 11.5"
Chainstay: 13.25" (Slammed)

To this:
BB Height: 11.6"
Chainstay: 13.125" - 13.375"
Headtube Angle: 75.5°
Seattube Angle: 71°
Seattube Height: 8.5" (216mm)
Seatpost Size: 25.4mm

It just feels like my bike is cramped. TO the point where I cant even tuck no hand because my TT is too short. I already got a setup from Albes, they told me to call up tomorrow and order up my Chrome Wi-Fi. I've already went through the hassle of calling them, emailing them, and setting up a deal.

You won't notice much of a difference. If the rear end feels to short you can just move it to length you have on your current frame.

Yeah, but honestly do you think the difference is worth getting this frame over ?

1/2" TT increase
5° Headtube Increase
Little shorter chainstay
BB height by .1

Or should I go a whole different direction into a longer CS. Thats all i'm really worried about, is wasting $350 on a slight difference. My frame doesn't feel the most solid currently..

I'd get it then. I like flowing around and stuff so 13.5-13.65 slammed is perfect for me. I HATED short chainstays. But I did understand why people like them. I'd go for it.

i noticed changing from 74.5 to 75, just right at first, then within 30 minuts i was used to it, but you can tell

if u had acsess to 2 different head angles at once, ride one, then switch all your parts the the other frame and you could tell

Depending on what sprocket and chain u use depends on the CS length on the Wifi. u can ride it 13.25+ if u dont want to go to short.

I roll a 25/9 full link. I'm just worried about riding it too far out and having my hub slip, dropouts bending, etc.
