Yeah, I certainly considered both sides of the sizing coin, especially since it would influence some riders’ decisions with their older rigs, certainly. I prefer a longer Reach (short stem and setback bar) than even is trendy for a short T-Rex like me. But what I prefer and what _can_ work for me are different things and I’m trying to be especially aware of ‘telling’ other people what they prefer or even what can work for them. There’s a lot of different terrain in the world (and yes, we have a steep and janky North Shore bent but, as this bike demonstrates, readers from everywhere) and add in personal preference and human adaptability and I think it’s for the better - unless if being asked for advice - that we assume folks are riding the size/a size of bike that works best for them.
