new frame size

hi guys.
as u might have guessed, i will likely need to buy a new frame soon. i need a slightly bigger frame anyhow, but i was just wondering:
i have my manuals dialed on a 20.5" frame. the frame i'm getting is 21"
i got two questions:

1. will that 0.5" size difference gonna mean i gotta start manuals from scratch again
2. is there really that much difference between 20.5" and 21"?

thanks.
J

If you're not banging your kness on your stem on your old frame, thenyou should be fine with another one.

Yes you will have to readjust, .5" is noticeable when you change frames. maybe buy a 21+ if you feel REALLY cramped.
