And, when you test the two different sizes, make sure that both are the same.
Check tires for the same pressure, same seat height from the ground, seat as level as possible, and as close as possible the handlebars should match. If there is anything wrong with brakes or shifters, have them adjust them right away.
Take them for as long a test ride as they will allow.
That way, you will be comparing apples to apples.... and you will find out if the longer reach is better for you, or not.
