Hmm....DocAltie said:I have an Air9 in medium (16.5) I just fitted-up last night. I am 5-7, 165lb, 30" inseam. I am running a 50mm stem, titec 8deg sweep flat bar. It's a tad short, but pretty comfy. I could see a 5-10 guy riding it with a 100mm stem.
I knew it would be a tad small, but I wanted to make sure I could get weight over the rear wheel.
Try rubber side down. It's even more fun!fux said:Hmm....
A tad small? With a 50mm stem, I would have said a tad large.
Im running a setback post and 90mm stem on a small, for the same grip on the rear wheel but able to get over the front to keep it rubber side up on the corners.
Almost all the 5`7 folk I know of who have niners use small frames. I suppose it must come down to preferance.
This still keeps the OP in the medium.
