Go for the proper fit and learn to deal with toe overlap. Can be as simple as moving your foot back on the pedals.stunzeed said:So I am 5'6" and according to Giants sizing should be on a small which is 5'3" to 5'7". I rode the small with a 70mm stem and it was ok cockpit wise but major toe overlap
I rode the medium which had an 80mm stem and cockpit was a tad stretched but no toe overlap. So Should I forget about giants sizing and go for the larger 29" Its my first 29" so not sure if its better to be smaller or larger
I will buzz the tire occasionally, even on my 26er. Never caused a serious problem.
