I'm doing some research and need some information on mountain bike height. So, if you wouldn't mind answering the following questions, I would greatly appreciate it. If you have more than one bike, feel free to answer it for all bikes or just one!

1. What is the distance from the top of your handle bars to the ground?
2. What is the distance from the top of your saddle to the ground?
3. What size is your bike (either S, M, L or 15, 17, 19 etc is OK)?
4. What type of riding do you use this bike for? (DH, XC, All Mountain, etc)?
5. What type of bike do you ride? (FS, HT, Rigid, etc)?
6. 26 or 29er?


Thank you!

Since I have no use for the measurements in 1 or 2, I'm not going to go measure (and even if I did, I wonder if you want sagged or unsagged measurements for suspension?). Just curious, but what specific reason do you have for research on these measurements? Planning on seeing what bikes do the limbo best?

For the limbo anyways. The V-type TT allows me to get way lowet than the bars. If the bars can clear it, I can.

Wouldn't it be easier to just advise your bike size and the vehicle and go from there, or you trying to fit all kinds of people in all kinds of vehicles? Saddles are usually easily lowered, so number 2 isn't necessarily a limiting factor.
