......okay this just f or some reassurance I guess.

I'm 6'0" tall 185 lbs and I ride an 18" frame.....I've tightened up the cockpit a tad with a shorter stem......I mainly ride xc with some DH in between and it feels good however I wonder........should I have gotten a 17" frame or would that have been to small for me? What are ya'll riding.....lemme know.....thx

I'm 6'1" and I ride the 18". For climbing and pedaling trails, I have the post at maximum extension but I like the reach on the bike (though I did add a 25mm longer stem). For me, there's no way I could have gone any smaller and enjoyed riding the bike (it would feel too cramped for me).

I ride an 18inch Dawg and that suits my 6 foot height.

A seventeen inch would be a bit cramped especially for the type of riding you do imo.

I'm 5'7" and I ride an 06' with a 17" frame. It seems to fit me well. I ride all types of terrain and have grown to like the fit really well.

I am 6'0 and the 18" felt too small for what I wanted to do ( bombing downhill runs and singletrack )
