I have one frame that is marginally too small. I used a slightly longer stem and a deeper handlebar to increase the reach slightly. Resist the temptation to move the saddle back from your standard position, it can cause an uncomfortable fit.

I compromised by reducing the reach while including a longer stem. Itís a good fit for a fast ride but less than ideal for a century.
