Hi there I was looking at the stolen wrap as my next bike but it has a 20.75 inch top tube...im 5 foot 6 and i've been told by friends that if i got the bike manuals and stuff will be a lot harder because of the big TT...is this true or is it just a case of adjusting to the feel of a new bike or will it be genuinely harder to pull tricks manuals etc.?

i'm 15 so i'll probably be growing a bit as well...


if anyone has any ideas about bikes that are a similar price that might suit me better lemme know...

I'm 5' 5" and I ran a 20.75" then 20.625" and now a 20.375". Thing if the 20.75" has a 74 deg head tube it will feel the same as 20.625" with a 74.5 deg head tube and almost the same a 20.375" with a 75 deg head tube.

Just amke sure its got a sort reat end, ie 13.75" slammed and you'll be fine.

PS - mate rides a 20.8" and I can manual that fine!

a 20.75 toptube would be alittle big but overall wouldnt be that big of a deal

20.75 isnt really that long. your not too short. but are you really going to stick to that frame untill your full grown?
