determining effective reach/ bike fit q.
I have a bike with a 53 cm top tube, a 72 degree hta, and a 74 degree sta. I have to cram my saddle pretty far back on this bike as I have very long legs for my height, but I am very happy with my fit and reach on the bike. I would not want the reach to be any longer than it currently is.
I'm considering getting a bike with a 54.1 cm tt, 73.5 sta, and 73 hta. The reach will wind up being roughly the same, right? Are there any other factors I need to consider?
The other option is a 52.5 top tube, same angles. I'm afraid if I go with the smaller size, I'll have trouble getting my bars high enough.
