If the geo on frame says 20.5 - 21 TT and a 13.4 - 14 CS, then if I get a 20.5 TT will the chain stay be longer like 14 or if i want a 14 CS I should get a bigger sized TT

13.4-14 is the size of the cs depending on where the wheel sits in the dropout. If its closer to the frame then it will be 13.4 if its pulled back it will be closer to 14 depending on gear ratio.

20.5 with a 14" back end? What type of riding do you do? How tall / old are you? If you want a back end that long you should probably look for another frame as its not likely that you will run your wheel all the way at the end of your chainstays.

13.4 = the very front of the drop out (slammed)
14 = the very back of the dropout (as far back as your wheel can go without hanging out)
So 13.4 is the shortest you can make it, and 14 is the longest you can make it.
So they all come with the same CS length, it just depends on where you put your wheel to make it feel longer or shorter
