    I'm 6' 3" on a large.

    The two sizes are quite close. I would think that a larger spread would have made more sense. Especially the head tube length. I need to stack alot to get my bars where I want them.

    The top tube sizing is quite short, no matter how I measure it, it still doesn't match the specs on the site. I find the large has a much shorter top tube than I'm used to but it's actually worked out for the best. I find that I actually like it. I can really toss it around.

    I would think that if you prefer a long top tube, I'd go with the large. It's already short! The small would just be more so.
