short cs makes a bike feel more agile and itl help it to spin faster, also makes it easier to get the front end up

longer cs are usually ideal for park and trails, makes things feel more relaxed

its really down to personal prefrence on what u like.

I have a 13.75, and honestly, it is the best I have ever run. I did run a 13.25, and the bike was like it didn't want to be under me, it was so agile, like it had a mind of it's own. 13.75 is just right. Good for manuals, it's still whippable, good if you ride trails. I like it, but it is really all personal preference.

If you look at tech riders, like Mark Webb, Harry Main etc, they all run really short chainstays, so if you want to have an agile bike, that is easier to whip, a 13.25 or a 13 will be best.
