Hello
I am changing my frame
I have been riding a 20.5 TT frame since I have started and i have decided to go with a 20.75 this time
could you recommend me a strong 20.75 TT frame with a good geometry and dimensions for a 177cm tall guy :D
for me its more important to be a comfortable frame which will make learning tricks easier than a really strong one because im still not that good and i dont ride extremely

BSD WZA v3 geo is perfect por me, 20.85 TT (0.10 inches is not going to be noticeable) and a 13.2-13.3 (not sure) rear end, it's not really expensive, and short rear ends make spins easier

if you're a tall guy why not just go to 21? 20.75 isn't much of a difference from 20.5

5'8"?? i suppose 20.75 would be good for that height, i'm 6' and 20.75 feels a little short still but technically it's all preference

for street, it is better if you like spinning and do manual tricks, for dirt and flowy park, longer chain stays would be more stable but will make spinning harder.
also, 20.75tt is just fine for your height, im 5.5-5.7ft and 20.85 is pretty comfortable and doesn't feel short, i also tried my friend's 20.5 fit marv, and it feels the same as my 20.85 bsd wza.

Nope if you like amplitude unless you have good bike control shorter chainstays will cause you to loop out and wreck your legs and back more

I'm about the same hight as you I'm looking into getting a Subrosa villicas prime 20.75 whenever I get a new frame. I would get something a little bigger though if your going to be doing more park and dirt than street.

I would recommend a 20.75" frame for your height. You can still ride a 21" frame, but it may feel a little bit long.

Choose a frame with a rear end length for your riding style. Like the others have said a shorter back end, typically 13.4 or less, will feel more snappy and responsive, while a longer back end will feel more stable and predictable in the air.

Also consider head tube angle. A mellow head tube around 74.5° will feel more stable and smooth on the front end of your bike, while a steeper head tube (75-75.5°) will make your front end less stable, but easier to get in to front wheel tricks like nose manuals.
