Er, no. Stem length changes things; just because your grips are in the same relative position to your saddle doesn't mean the bike will handle or feel the same.  ![](https://cdn-cyclingtips.pressidium.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/Weight-Fig.jpg) Front center, stack, reach, wheelbase... all of these things matter. Yes, you can fine tune and make changes within a reasonable range, but you can't just throw a 125mm long stem and high rise bar on a small frame and think it'll be the same as riding a large with with a 50mm.
