  1. Hi all, I have always wondered if a large frame 27.5 would be similar to a medium frame 29er. basically, I fit a 29er medium frame perfectly but am looking to ungrade. All i can find are large frame 27.5s. Would this serve me the same or close to? (I am 173cm) Many Thanks
  2. It would be nice to see a sub-forum dedicated to clothes wear, for beginners, as well as for large people (men and women included)? At the moment, one has to search deep and long, in the "Gear" section of the forum, which is mostly technical and non-clothes oriented. The Search function also does not always provide 100% accurate results.
  3. Hi guys, I'm looking to upgrade to a new MTB, think it's about time to say goodbye to my old faithful 26er. I just need advice on the sizing of a 29er. I'm 1,89m, I currently ride a 21' XL frame. Somehow it feels like I can't get any good XL MTB deals within my budget, so I want to know if I find a good deal on a large MTB, should I take it, or rather stick to a XL frame. Thanks
  4. Hi there, Still searching for an upgrade and was wondering if you guys could help regarding size. I have ridden Trek both Medium and Large frames before. I called a local cycling shop and asked them about a Medium frame. They suggested I should be on a large as most my height are? I have done 2 online bike fits one more advanced one and one based on height and actual inseam. The one website said 17.5" bikes up to 19 at largest and the more advanced one gave me more measurements. Based on standover height, virtual top tube length and my height 1.79m if I went for a Trek or Giant I would be around a Medium (when looking at the bikes Geometry). 1.79 height Actual Inseam 79.8cm Arm 57.8 Lower leg 53.2 and thigh 58.2 My standover height should be between 75.9 and 77.45 and virtual top tube length 58.1 and 59.1cm. The bikes iv been looking at were the Trek Superfly 9.8, Giant Anthem 27.5 (older model) Older Stumpjumper but think I would like 27.5 better. Calling the shop just threw me off as I'm looking at getting a second hand bike from gumtree or here. Thanks for the advice! Sean
  5. I have a couple of bits lying around and was toying with the idea of putting it all together as a backup MTB. I usually ride Large frame bikes and some reckon I should actually be on a XL frame. Sometimes I do ride my wife's XS frame 26er but only for short distances. Now for my backup bike I see there are a few nice frames available but all are Medium sized. What are the pros and cons of a large frame rider on a medium frame bike?
