btw you cant feel the height of your frame it makes no difference i have to assume you mean the chainstay length. only diff i can tell between the 2 bikes height wise is one has a seat post.

what frame is each bike in the pictures? and do you do tailwhips?

the biggest difference between the 2 bikes is first one has a slammed seat and really high bars and stem, second one has low bars and stem and a high seat. the seattube lengths look to be within one inch of each other. explain how this makes a difference.

if the new bike is a lofi with 13.25 chainstays i am guessing the uncomfortable ness comes from the bike trying to do back flips on you when you hop and your bars being huge.

the bars and stem hight is not the problem, and no my new frame is a colony sect, and my old frame is a hamilton. yes the seat is slammed in the pic, but i dont ride with it that low, i have about 2 inches of post showing, and the back end length is the same as on my old hamilton 13.75

the top tube makes alot of difference ok. its personal preferance.

The Fit is not that low and has removable mounts
i no the fit ed frame is not low, hence why i like it, but it bit to pricey for me
