the length of the cs effects it most i think, if i were you id stay with your currnent size if not bigger if you keep hitting your knees, because youll ride better if youre comfertable. Try going for something with a longer tt and shorter cs, about 13-13.5 if you want it super snappy like me wink

I don't think I feel comfortable on longer top tubes cause I tryed out my friends 21tt and I couldn't really hop. Or 180 felt too big

Get a 20.8-21" with a 13-13.4 cs and youll be fine.

I don't think the top tube effects barspins that much. It might be more of your bar width or you just need to straighten your legs more. I'm 5'8 and ride a 20.75 and love it. I used to ride with a 21 top tube and could still do everything I do now on it. Instead of getting a smaller frame I think you should look into getting a top tube of like 20.8 or even 21

Tbh i found rotations easier on my 21" than my 20.5. Theres alot more to it than just tt length. A 21" with a 12.9 cs and 75.5 ht will rotate way faster and hop way easier than a 20.5 with a 13.75 cs and 74.5 hta. Look into a Fit Wifi, Fit Benny, Fit Mac, Fit MotoMike, Sunday Broadcaster, and S&M BTM in 21". These frames will probably feel alot more comfortable aswell as hop easier and rotate near the same.

take note that stevie churchill is a short dude so its normal that he rides a short frame
since ur tall, a 21 would be better in my opinion, but it might take time to get used to it

My new bike I'm getting has a bsd too loose frame and I had enough left over to get a fit wifi I just didn't want to get wrong size if the bsd frame on my bike feels uncomfortable is it okay to go with my comfortable 20.75

20.5-20.75..the tt length isn't the reason for your bars hitting it's you no sitting far enough back and straitening out your legs enough..i'm 6'1" and ride a 20.75 comfortably it's more preference than an actual size vs height

Get anywhere from a 20.75 - 20. 85 TT.

Also , if your bike feels sluggish , get one with a 75 HT or more , and a 13.8 CS max to about 13.3 slammed
