I built up a frame for my girlfriend last year as her frame was just a little bit too big. I am thinking of building the old frame for myself. The original axle to crown fork (suspension) was about 47cm long. I was thinking of putting on a rigid one which is 40.5 cm long.
My question is how might this affect the geometry of the bike. Would it ride ok? The frame is a hybrid and I plan to use it as a commuter?
I appreciate the feedback
