I currently ride a small Litespeed C3, but am itching to upgrade to something more refined. It is very slightly long but I make do with a 90mm stem. I think the XS 695 would fit me better than the S, but I noticed it has a slack HTA which results in a trail of 70.7mm, almost 10mm more than my current bike. Does this automatically equate poop handling? I very much enjoy the sharp steering response of the Litespeed.

Also, if you have any recommendations for a frame, please let me know! (ISP and internal routing preferred) :beerchug:
