they will make every effort to make it's fit the same.
The Pakit is much more standardized with 4 frame sizes. Other than changing the stem, the fit is pretty much the same. I test rode a size small Pakit before I bought mine; the owner chose to set it very upright so I had "imagine" my preferred riding position but it was easy enough to get a good sense of the bike (which helped inform the upgrades I made). The Pakit is different from the NWT, Rocket, Llama, and Crusoe in this regard; it's a bit more mass produced than the other BF.
