    19 inch X YBB 2010 or 18 inch X YBB 2012

    Hi,

    I'm facing a small dilema.
    First of all, I'm 1.83m (6.00 feet) and have a seat height of 795mm (31.3 inches)

    I'm very tempted by 2 second hand frames.
    One is a 19" X YBB 2010, the other is a 18" X YBB 2012

    I really wonder which one I should go for because I think if I had to buy a new 2012,I'd go for a 19" 2012.
    Still, with a 2010, I think a 19" would be appropriate...
    And as between the 18" 2012 and the 19" 2012, the top tube is the only big difference between the two sizes, i'm puzzled...
    Especially knowing that the TT of the 19" 2010 is exactly the same lenght as the 18" 2012...
    See what I mean?


    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Here are the geometries of both:

    YBB 2010
    SIZE [IN] 19
    EFFECTIVE TOP TUBE 596,9mm
    SEAT TUBE /C - T / 495,3mm
    HEAD TUBE LENGTH 110mm
    HEAD ANGLE 71.5
    SEAT ANGLE 73.8
    BB HEIGHT [IN] 12
    CHAIN STAY 447,04mm
    STAND OVER 774,7mm
    FORK TRAVEL 80mm


    YBB 2012
    SIZE [IN] 18
    EFFECTIVE TOP TUBE 596,9mm
    SEAT TUBE /C - T / 495,3mm
    HEAD TUBE LENGTH 120mm
    HEAD ANGLE 71
    SEAT ANGLE 74
    BB HEIGHT [IN] 12
    CHAIN STAY 452,12mm
    STAND OVER 805,18mm
    FORK TRAVEL 100mm
