I need some adive about the size of a frame. can't ride it because its an online deal. I am 6'2" with a 33" inseem. Would a 19 inch frame be way too small for me? too small to compensate with a long stem?
I'm 6'2" with a 34" inseam. The19" just a hair too short in the seat tube. The reach is perfect with a 120mm sterm, though. Definately try to find a Jamis dealer (check http://www.jamisbikes.com/dealer_search/dealerFrames.html) in your area and try to ride a few. In the end, it's easier to make a slightly too large of frame fit you than too small.
