You're too short to be rocking a 21 inch TT. I know everybody thinks it's cool to rock the longest frame, the tallest/ widest bars, and the fattest tires but most kids ride around on bikes that don't fit them at all. I think you would be a lot more comfortable on a 20.5 inch TT length.

I'm 5'11" and ride a 20.5 TT, my stem has a 48mm reach, my bars are 7.75 rise and probably 26 inches wide. It took me a long time to figure out what kind of set up I liked best but these are the measurements that work best for me.

I awarded myself infinite cool points. Breaking the rules has never been this cool... EVER! Forever.

Dirty ridin

3/9/2009 2:32 PM

im 5'5 150 pounds riding a 20.5 so idk to me all tt's are the same only difference i feel is when i got to spin or manual and sometimes bunnyhop cause u gotta know how to pull up the bars but all my boys have different size top tubes and i riden all of them no homo from 20.25 to 21.25 and i can 180 all of them except my boys pantera 21 and my other boys 21.25 which i have no idea wut make it is.... u can get a top tube ur comfy with and then depending on how u feel (to short or something) u can change ur stem and adjust ur bars..try the 20.5!!
