I'm torn between a 2013 Specialized Stumpy 29er and the Fly Ti 29er. I used to have a 2010 Stumpy, which frame wise, is exactly the same as the 2013. I'm between 6'1" and 6'2" 175 lbs and I git PERFECTLY on my old XL (21") Stumpy... but while reading reviews on this board and elsewhere about the Fly Ti, it seems a lot of people claim that these frames have a long reach and run a bit large. I've review the geometry between the two bikes, and it seems that the Fly has a slightly longer (by 3mm) horizontal TT length, and 21mm longer wheelbase. Standover height is actually quite a bit shorter on the Fly by roughly 50mm.
My question is, given that I was completely satisfied with the fit of the Stumpy, but would rather have a Ti bike, is it safe to assume that I'd be just fine on a 21" Fly?
