I'm currently riding a 16" zaskar frame and I stand at 5' 10". I have a spare 18 inch frame that I'm thinking about swapping out. Does anybody know what are recommended sizes for per height? Also, what size does a 16" frame equate to in the XS - XSL sizing that GT now uses.

Thanks.

Kenny

16"=M. I'd say it depends upon your inseam. If your on the leggy side...32 inseam you might like an 18 with a tad shorter stem than you currently ride on you 16.

This is the sizing chart for the 08 Re-Issue frame. I think it follows from 2000 or whenever they changed to letter sizing.
S (14)
M (16)
L (18)
XL (20)

I'm around 5'10 have a medium I-drive Team. My buddy has a large Zaskar Team and I feel better in a medium. Inseam seems to be fine on both bikes. I do prefer my bikes smaller than average. I'd rather get a medium even though I can also ride a large without a problem. I'd say try the 18 and see how it works. Heck, if you don't like it, you can always go back to the 16.
