I'd say the Long, most other L DJ frames come in around 1050-1060 and are reccomended for 6ft+ (smalls tend to be 1030/40). the XL size is way to big

Yeah I'm trying to balance not feeling cramped in the cockpit and not having the wheelbase feel like a barge. Is it possible to install an angle set to steepen up the HTA on the PBJ?

I would sooner get the shorter frame, than start changing the steering geometry for the wrong reason.

I ended up getting the x-long after having the opportunity to test both. I could live with either but I'm pretty sure if I added a 80mm rise bar (like I did on my x-long) to the long the bars would be really close to my knees. Also my spin trick days are behind me so a bit of extra stability isn't much of a tradeoff.
