Hi... am in the market for a new bike and was looking into the Motobecane Hals. Was wondering if anyone has had to upsize for a longer reach? Also looks like the standover height jumps up significantly with each size up. Anyone had any issues with that?

I'm 5'8 with fairly long arms and short legs and am looking for a bike with 430-440mm reach. Will be running a 30-40mm stem. For reference, I have a DH bike with a 453mm reach and 42mm stem and the bike i'm currently riding right now for the next few weeks is a 2018 Jeffsy with a 440mm reach with 35mm stem and 800mm bars.
