*generally* as amounts of travel go up, stand over heights go up as well. obviously true with larger frame sizes. if someone really wants longer TT lengths and low standover/short seattubes, you eihter shop around like crazy to find a frame that has the numbers you like, or have a custom frame built.

suppose one could have a custom mixte frame built if one was really that anal about having gobs of standover room.
