69 degrees will make your bike feel shorter. So if you have a 21 inch top tube it will most likely feel like a 20.5 but with extra room.
I'm guessing 74 makes your bike feel longer. Only reason I know this is because I had a superstar frame that had a 70 degree seat tube angle.

I would like my TT to feel longer so 69 would be bad for that

Who the eff makes a frame with a 74 STA is my question?
Just stick with the standard 71....

12/9/2011 8:30 PM

Yeah 71 would be a lot better. You're actually getting a shorter top tube with the 74.

It's actually 71 my bad would I have a longer TT with 71 or 69

Just buy a 71 and don't worry about it lol
Relatively speaking, if a 71 and a 69 have the same tt length, the 71 will feel longer.

It'd be longer with a 69. It would also probably be easy to spin and do can-can's and shit like that.

Should I go with 69 cuz I want it to be long

not that durastic but yes, i ride a 21 with a 69 angle and its bassically supposed to be a 20.75- 20.8 with TT room, i read alot on it before i ordered my frame

becuase the 69 is making your tt longer at the same time putting your bb closer to your headtube

basicallly a short 21, i like it

So it makes the TT longer so there is more space but then moves the bb closer so I have less leg room?

yep, but your ttalking .125 of an inch per degree, so from the highly used 71 to 69 is .25 of and inch , so if you got a 21, standing up and riding it will be simmilar to a 20.75, but sit down and it has the room of a 21, more room for turndowns

it sounds like you want one nice and looooong, find a 21.25 with a 69, the only one i know is the fit eddie

That's what I wanted to get but I dont want the TT to feel shorter when I stand I'm 15 and 6'3 I love to bmx have no plans to stop but I need a long TT and if the 69 degree makes it feel shorter when standing I don't want that unless I misunderstood

ya that 21.25 will fell more like a 21 when riding, damn your tall as hell, i think youd be okay for the eddie, cuase you dont want the 21.25 to feel to long. my freind that is around 6 1' had a 21.25 cam wood and hated it cuase he saud it was very sluggish to spin and what not, but having the 75 HT should fix that for the eddie

do what you feel, you might want a nice long frame, but this eddie is a responsive long frame. IMO if i was u id get the eddie

maybe find a buddie with a 21.25?

I don't really know anyone with that mostly 20.75s my one friend is like 5'10 and he rides a 20tt stock bike I tried riding it and it was awful. Right now I have a 20.75 that feels okay but I want something longer I'm just thinking that I should maybe not get the Eddie because I'm gonna grow more and I don't wanna have to buy a new frame in 2 years cuz I think this ones to small because of the seat tube angle but I reall like the frame it's just I feel like the ATF would feel longer
