you are correct, with that kind of height the frame will combust

The combination of super low tt and the mega short cs would be bad for you. Your height would give you far too much leverage over the bike, it would be like someone of 5ft 8 riding a 19.5" tt with a 12.5" cs, it would be the right geo for you if you rode flatland.

If you're a flowy rider, aim for a 21.25tt and 14ish cs, fit lurch, kink farside and mutiny burlish would be the kind of frames you should look at.

It you're more tech the shortest you would want to go is a 21" tt and 13.75" cs, so frames like the kink lost dutchman, bsd forever and united squads would be worth looking at.

You got to bare in mind being tall you gotta think in proportion to your size, so what would feel reasonable to someone around 5 10 would feel totally wrong to you. Stick to stable geo, 74.5* ha longer tt/cs and maybe lowish bb.

The tierra is a great frame, but see if anyone you know has a tierra and ride it. The most important thing about any frame/bike is that it is comfortable.

Tierras are shit but you recommend other frames from the same company?

Look into the FBM Exodus, it should be a bit more comfortable for you.

I just want to add that a frame that fits you well helps with every trick in every way, it'll even help with spins a lot more than just getting a short frame.
