With standover not being a concern I would like to get opinions on these options.



A med frame with a 105mm stem or a large frame with a 90mm stem.


I assume the med would weigh less and be a little stiffer but how about wheelbase or anything else?


BTW the bike will be a Superfly 100 or 29 Epic Marathon.

I would go large with the shorter stem but there are more things to consider..like how is the stem length going to affect the steering..

Med with longer stem. I prefer more weight on the front wheel than is the current fashion.

The med comes with a 90mm stem stock so im sure the lg with a 90 would be ok.
