hey every1 haven't been on here for a while...(been working a lot)....anyways I'm buying a new frame 2 Fridays from this Friday when I get paid..and I'm not sure what size TT will suit me or how big to go ... I've been on a 20.5 for 3 years and it hurts my back after a couple hours of riding. i am about 6ft tall. I was thinking either a 21'' or a 21.25''.

Opinions please

21" Top Tube would probably be perfect. Im 6ft and have a 21.25 and i wish i could've gotten a 21 or even a 20.8. The extra room of the 21.25 feels comfy when riding around but i've noticed when throwing it around seems a little long to me. And for your back hurting i'd maybe get a topload and some bigger bars

oh well yeah what are you riding now? cause if you take the length off the chainstay and add it to the toptube, say going from a 20.5 with a 13.75 back end to a 21 with a 13.25 back end, it'd have the same wheelbase but it'd be more roomy, it's more about where the cranks sit in between the wheels. 21 should be perfect

id recomend 21 and a topload or some large bars. If you have a buddy that rides 21 or larger give it a shot.

As for the people that bitch about how much harder it is to spin larger frames...they ether dont know what the hell they are talk ing about or they are just little sissys because i can still hop 3 my 21.25 with ease. It really does not make much or a differace at all IMO.
