    Flash sizing

    I have to choose between a L or XL flash.

    Currently riding a 20" Merida - perfect fit

    Used to ride a M5 SWorks 21" - too large

    A geometry desktop comparison of the three frames seems to indicate I need a L for top tube length and XL for seattube (although the Merida measures more in-between the L and XL

    I am 193cm tall and it my legs are on the longer side proportionally.

    I would certainly appreciate inputs: should I go for the L and adjust height via seatpost height or should I go for the XL and shorten the stem?

    Check the horizontal top tube length, seat tube length doesn't matter at all as it depends more on the slope of the top tube and seatposts make it the most irrelevent measure of a frame. But in doubts, try to get on one before you buy...
