i seem to see a lot on BF that it isnt okay to just get a longer stem for your bike, vs buying a bike with a longer top tube.
my bike is comfortable for standover but I feel a little scrunched up riding it & it fatigues my lower back. I'm otherwise happy with the bike. I'd rather not have to sell it (I've only had it for a year & a half) and deal with buying a new bike.
what's the real reason not to just get a longer stem? is that not part of fine tuning your fit anyway?
