I am considering the purchase of a 19" Element 50 and was checking out the geometry of the bike and noticed that the standover height is smaller this year that last year even though RM quotes and improved standover height over 2003 models.

Standover 2004: 799 mm
Standover 2003: 786 mm

Don't go by the numbers . . . .

Don't get bogged down in the numbers. Throw a leg over one and see how it feels. If it rides right, then get it! The Element is a sweet ride and will serve you well if it's a good fit, which you can only tell with a ride--not from a brochure.
By the way, a 19" fits me perfeclty. I'm just a smidge under 6' with a 34" inseam.
