Trying to find out a comfortable frame. So i have tried a 20.5, 20.75, 20.8 and 21 tt lengths all feel long to me like the manual points and things do you think for my height 5' 6" a shorter tt would be better?


anyone else ride a small tt length does it make a difference in bar spins or tailwhips?

any reviews on tt length for shorter riders?

just curious because i have so many frames because I just cant find the one that i just "love" yet

Get a 20.25-20.5" with a 7.25-8" stand over, 75deg headtube angle, and a short rear end (13.35-). Sounds like what you need for everything youre describing. Mankind Justice would be ideal.

I rock a 21 tt, BUT the rear end will factor in how hard it is to get the manual started and how squirrelly you will be to keep it.

Shorter rear ends are easier to get into manuals, but the balance point is a bit smaller so you might feel squirrelly keeping it balanced. In air it might feel twitchy, same for if you are cruising really fast. Spins are a bit easier to initiate too. Whips may take a little less effort as well.

Longer rear ends are harder to get into manuals, but may feel more stable once locked in. Also speed will feel more stable, same with in air on longer frames. Spins are slower and a little more effort to start. Whips may be a little harder to kick around.

20.5 with a short chainstay for manuals look into MacNeil frames

Check out the Mankind Justice.. My buddy is the same height... His riding skills has improved in the last few weeks, and he was struggling big time on a 21 tt frame. Good advice Hard BMX- Tim

Just try and stick it out with one frame, you will get them down on any tt length if you ride the frame for a good while
