I'm no expert on MTB fitting myself, but one odd thing I have noticed, is that if one looks at the riders' size and the bikes they ride from sites like CyclingNews.com, I notice most pros seem to ride bigger bikes in terms of top tube lengths than what you might see on road bikes for the same riders. Example: Chris Eatough's Trek Top Fuel: rider 5'10" on a 62.8cm top tube. Is this normal? Same size guy on road bike would be on like a 55 to 57 likely. Not even close to a 62!
In my case my road bike is a 57cm top tube and my Titus Racer X is actually very close to that (measured 'virtual' or level). It feels fine to me. I run a 120mm stem though.
