Last edited by Dazed; at I think it' important to distinguish gender with this survey. I know my old XC hardtails were always set up in the strectched out attact position these days on my dualy I sit considerably more errect yet I run a fairly long stem to insure I'm still in what feels like an agressive and somewhat comfortable posistion.

To measure the inseam, you need a yardstick and a medium-sized book. Your child now stands with his back against a wall without shoes, without pants and possibly also without a diaper. Now lead it carefully from below, but with gentle pressure upwards into the crotch.
Now measure the distance between the floor and the book spine or top edge of the book and you will get the inside leg length. Once you have measured the inseam, you can look up the corresponding bike size in the kids bike size chart by inseam above.
