Hi,

I'm looking to get a used NRS. I'm about 5'11" and 175# and I'm trying to determine which frame size would be recommended for me. Also, would the components (namely the fork) on a small frame bike bolt up to a larger frame? The reason I ask is that I'm looking at a small frame bike in great shape at a good price. I was thinking that if it turns out to be too small, I could buy a used larger frame, swap components, and sell the small frame. Would this work or would there be problems? Thanks for the suggestions.

Jimmy

you're sized right in between a medium and a large. A fork from a small will most likely be too short for a larger sized frame since the head tube lengths will be different. Don't make the bike buying harder then it is with having to buy a smaller frame and try to transfer the parts to a different frame.
