I'm currently riding a 2001 49cm KG361. However I have found a pretty sweet deal on a 49cm 2004 481 SL. Here is my dilema.
I'm riding a 90mm stem with my 361. If I am measuring correctly, then the top tube is 52.5 on that bike. But the geometry chart for the 481 SL says it has a top tube of 53.8. Will that 1cm make a big difference you think? I refuse to go with an 80mm stem.
I think my head tube angle is 71 degrees and the 481 is 72. Both have the same seat angle. I cannot find a 2001 geometry chart for the 361 so I cannot verify my numbers.
Just wondering what you guys thought? Can anyone verify the numbers for my 361?
Thanks,
-Pete

I thought I remembered it being in the 53.5 range, but then I took a look at the chart below (see link) for the 2004 KG 451 (just another version of mine) and the 51cm showed as 53.4. That is why I was questioning my measurement. I was just thinking that if the 51 was 53.4 then perhaps mine was a little shorter.
