A big headtube with no spacers, or smaller headtube with say, 2cm of spacers under the stem?

For comparison, playing with a bike geo calculator, I'm looking at the Green vs Blue bike options, headtubes differ by 29mm; reach & stack netting out about the same with a stem length change.
What bike is the green one? I like that geo.
