Bike fit is a game of millimeters - I've seen and experienced the difference a 2mm adjustment in stem height can make. So why would you subject yourself to fitting a bike to your body that's INCHES out of whack? 1 inch =25.4 mm. That's a Lot of adjustment! The top tube+stem difference between my wonderfully riding last bike and my better-riding present bike is 9mm, and that 9mm put the present one into "perfection" territory.
