Fashion vs. Fit: Is Longer Always Better? - Opinion
@KennyWatson: While that's true, the reach variation would be pretty minimal on a 120-140mm fork. I guess it goes back to what I was saying in my original comment. While I understand what Stanton is saying I would find his bikes way too cramped for someone of my dimensions (for instance the Sherpa has 449mm reach on a 21" frame). We are all different in our riding styles and body shape, so it's great that there's so much choice with geo nowadays.

Fashion vs. Fit: Is Longer Always Better? - Opinion
@marzocchi170: It's hard to say really, as both bikes are quite different, 473mm on a 27.5 160mm enduro bike and 500mm on a 29er hardtail, I originally tried a 50mm stem on the hardtail but it felt a bit too long and the bike was a bit of a handful in tight twisty stuff, going down to 35mm made all the difference. I can't say I notice any disparity in steering speed between the two.

Fashion vs. Fit: Is Longer Always Better? - Opinion
Being 6'3 I'm very happy with this trend. I don't think I owned a bike that properly fitted me until a few years ago. I now have 3 bikes with reach ranging from 473mm running a 50mm stem to over 500mm running a 35mm stem and I feel so much more centered over my bike and find it so much easier to weight the front wheel, where as I tended to ride off the back more on shorter bikes. I think it's very difficult to say when a bike is too long, as there are so many body shapes and even the more extreme frames like Pole and Geometron will suit some riders.
