SS in CO
so I'm converting to 29er after long deliberation and a final answer in the form of my fork blowing a seal and not really being worth the fix...I've decided on swapping out my frame and fork and wheels for an On-One inbred 29er and big wheels. I'm just wondering about size. on paper, the 19.5 looks to be right for me. I'm 6'1" and about 195 and I like a longer TT. the 19.5 should fit fine. but...what if I get a mary bar? I'll need to run a little longer stem right? and I've heard that running a longer stem "ruins the 29er experience"...so should I get the bigger frame? it seems like the XL frame would be too big. what's the opinion on running longer stems with 29ers? or am I wrong in thinking that I'll need to run a longer stem with the mary?
