comment Direct Mount with top and bottom swing?
Top pull and bottom pull are not the same as top swing and bottom swing - but that's a good point. I've updated the answer to reflect this.

Just looking at the 2009 Novara Randonee geometry, looks like the XS (47cm ST) has a ~53CM effective top tube, plus a 55mm rake fork. The medium is a 55cm ST and 56cm ETT - the reason for the relatively longer top tube on the XS is to push out that front wheel. The compromise there is that you end up more stretched-out than might necessarily be ideal.
