The leg thing seems more like a setup issue than a geometry issue, but if your inseam is correct then I’d assume you’d have a very long torso, and then I could see why they would recommend the F as the reach would be longer with most setups. However theoretically speaking more saddle-bar distance is possible on the Z series since the seat and heat tubes diverge at a greater angle, whereas on the F series they are closer to parallel. Though in order to achieve this you would need to run an aggressive setup with a lot of handlebar drop, which kind of defeats the purpose if you’re looking at the Z for a relaxed fit. On the other hand because the F has a such a short head tube, I’d be worried you might have to run more spacers than would be safe.
