I've been riding an older Jake the Snake for a few years, and was looking to get a Major One. My JtS is a 49 cm and fits fine, but when I tried out a 49cm Major One it felt a little smaller. This could have been due to the way the shop had it setup relative to my JtS (no layback on post, lots of spacers under the stem versus my current slight layback and no spacers). Looking closer, it seems the geometry is a little different between the two. The Major One is ~ 5mm shorter in ETT and has a much steeper angles (72.5 HTA and 75.5 STA versus 70 and 73 degrees).

So, after all that - anyone short with experience on a Major One? I'm 5'6" with a 29.5" inseam - should I go with the 49, or try and find a 52? Thanks.
