Im trying to decide on a 17" or 19" Big unit. It looks like they dropped the 18" size. Im 5'-9.5" with short legs about 30" inseam. Im a bigger guy but muscular and in shape around 220lb. My current ride is a trek 69er single speed 17.5 with a 100mm stem it feels a tad short to me im always on the back edge of the saddle but other than that perfect.

Bump, in the same boat. Who else is this body size and rides a 19"? Thanks!!!

Side question, if you needed to run a smaller stem to fit a 19, 60-70mm?, how much would that take away from the experience?

Loving it, balls, not so much. ;p

The 18" Fatbikes I ride have a 23.9" ETT and I use a 90mm stem on those. Going to the 24.49 ETT with a 70mm stem has been working great so far.

Still fine tuning. Maybe a picture or two to come.
