I am buying a new Thorn Raven http://www.sjscycles.com/thornbrochure.asp.
It seems that my size gives me the option either of a 512 with a short seat post or a 487 with a long seat post. I don't fully understand the benfits to be had by going either for the larger or for the smaller frame. Anyone any ideas?
Also - any comments on Thorn's opinion that the Reynolds 853 frame may not be able to take the knocks?
