Hi guys,
I'm currently riding a SCOTT Foil 20, size-S but my friend recently gave me an offer for his TIME RXRS Ulteam that I cannot resist. However, his TIME is size-XXS.

Based on the geo diagram thru the web, TIME's identical size with reference to my SCOTT is size-XS. I was thinking of just buying a longer stem to compensate for the shorter top tube that TIME has. Do you think it will work? I'm 170cm tall. Appreciate some thoughts...

<if i'm not in the right forum/place, please help direct me to the right forum... thanks>

Terry

It might be the way to go but what is the length of your current stem and how long would you need to go to get proper fit? It could possibly effect handling and weight distribution.

I'm using a 110 stem which came together with the original bike.

my friend has already dismantled his bike and now it is a bare frame...no chance for me to test it unless i'm willing to spend some time to move my components from FOIL to TIME for a test ride and fitting.

i heard some friends say some pro-peloton riders opt for smaller bike than usual to lighten the weight and increase power transfer and agility. i wonder if that is true.

It's all about understanding how to compare stack and reach of the two frames . See discussion currently on this for main page, here:
