What’s up team! Looking for a little help from the hardtail hivemind.

I’ve got an XL 2016 Trans Am over-forked with a 140 bomber- its got a 470 reach. Dope bike, but I’m psyched on the new Ragley Big Wig frames that have a more aggro hta and a slightly longer 480 reach.

I’m 6’3 with a 6’4 wingspan and have been appreciating modern reach numbers on my FS. Is the 10mm difference between the transition and the Ragley negligible? Is the big wig too conservative? I’m also drooling over a used Rootdown frame that has like 590ish numbers.

For context I’m riding in in NCs Piedmont with a lot of punchy climbs and Rocky rooty sections. I take the HT to western NC when I work out there, so some Pisgah riding is involved as well.

6’7” rider here and on an xl Rootdown. And it’s a 509 reach I believe on the Chromag. But, Get the longer reach, you’ll be glad you did.
