    actual c-c on seat tube will be in range of 14". head angle with 30% sag on the 120mm will be right about 69.7 ... seat about the same....
    im 5'11" but have always run a compact bike. this way, i bury the seat and hit the rough stuff and it should fly. well as much as my skill allows anyway!

    it helps allow short stays/ring clearance with the wider bb. to run a decent chainline with 83mm bb you need wider than 135 hub...qed. :-)~
