Currently i'm riding a deuce deuce which has a 14.25" cs slammed. fucking ridiculous. i want a new frame. i was thinking s&m atf which has a 13.4" so there's a .85" difference between the two frames. I don't know but i feel like a much shorter back end would feel right. Not as short as the BTM tho. I guess what i'm asking is does anybody think this will be too short for me after riding a 14.25" or would it be safer to go with a frame that's like 13.55"??? i know its all personal preference but some input would be appreciated before i blow a few hundred on a guess.

I have an ATF and love it. The geo on it is killer in my opinion and the 13.4 rear end feels great. 14.25 is crazy long so your are deff going to feel a BIG difference, but you just got to give it a day or 2 to get use to it. I say go with the ATF!

Cant go wrong with an atf, even if you bought a btm you would get used to it eventualy.

i like the mac geo but its not on dans and i got a gang of reward points. eddie is a lil too long. since i dont gotta run my wheel slammed im not worried about a frame being too short cus even with the atf i can run it at 13.875" but i just dont wanna get a frame with a rear end thats not short enough. and 21.25 is mandatory for my tall ass. shit tho, idk, i think im just gonna get the atf, 13.4 should be plenty short
