What is the effect of a head tube being being shorter with all other frame measurements being =. Specifically 148mm vs 152mm. I have an Orbea Onix in size 54 that I think fits me well and looking at the Aqua the only difference in the sizes is the Aqua's head tube.

Thanks

If the other tube lengths are all the same then the seat tube or head tube angle must be different which could alter handling and/or seat for/aft position.
A different head tube length means none of those things. Head tubes are often extended 5-10mm, simply at the manufacturer's discretion.

Or the top tube could slope up towards the head tube, so you don't get that "extended head tube" look.

That "extended head tube" look is not a good look. This is the goofiest thing I've ever seen! :eek:
