Yes, yes, that's what she said..

Anyways, i'm going from a 20.4 to a 21.25, and i'm all about style, and big tricks, reckon I will be able to adjust?

opinions would be just lovely!

i'm about 5'10 - 5'11, got 28 by 8.15 space bars.. and i'm going through a savage growth spurt lol

and recently i've noticed my current frame is teeny weeny on me (20.4)

i realy dont see the advantage of a longer frame (personally). as long as your back's not hurtin id go with the smallest size possible.(personal preferecne once again). if i were you id maybe stay on the safe side with a 20.75

my back was caining with the 20.4 and i non stop knee'd the stem after summer cos i grew.. hmm, thanks for the advice!

21.25" is likely going to be a bit on the big side but you never know, it's preference. 20.75" or 21" may be more up your alley but I can't be the judge of that. You've just gotta try out some bikes with various toptube lengths. If you do go with 21.25" and it feels too big you can always purchase a shorter stem but it's best to choose correctly right from the start obviously.

i think im the same height as you, i run a 20.7" and its alright, its a small bike and after a long days riding my back does get sore sometimes but otherwise it seems alright... hmm now to think of it i do have a 21" frame around somewhere, im starting to miss it...

if i was you id just get a 21" top tube, it wont give you a sore back and your riding style should be the same after you get used to it

try riding a 21.25

im 5,8 and a 21 feels rather nice.

21.25 would be fine. longer bikes feel more stable and shit. im runnin a 21 and could ride a 21.25 easy, go for it man, especially if your gonna be 6 ft soon
