Quit being a pussy and learn to manual that shit, it'll pay off in the long haul. You don't want to be that kid who has to have a free coaster to fakie, or rides offset asa forks to nose manual.

If your 5'7'' then I would look for something around a 20.75 tt. I'm 5'9" and I'm gonna get a 20.75.

You can learn anything on anything unless it's a Walmart Mongoose, then maybe you can complain. But even on the crappiest bikes like back in the day, people could do anything like pros can today.

You adjust to whatever. I noticed it's a lot easier to manual on my friends frame that has a 13.75 cs once you get into it than a frame I had with a 13.2 cs

Yeah everyone likes to talk about short stays being good for manuals, but I think I felt most comfortable doing mannies on a 13.75 stay, and I'm 5'8". I have a Marv now which is short, but I wanted a bike that felt good for rapid fire spins and techy lines. Manuals are pretty good on it, but I just deal with it.

Yeah, don't be a bitch, before I learned them, I always thought it was the frame, it's definitely not. I learned them on the same frame and I'm still running it.

why would you ask if 13.75 cs is too long if you already think 13.5 feels too long?

The problem here is that you "can't manual for shit".

Solution: learn to manual.
-tip: practice. then practice more.

The bike doesn't manual itself. You'll gain better perspective and opinion on cs length AFTER you know how to manual. Then you can really build a bike around yourself. For now learn n ride, ride n learn. No rush.
