Test rode a new one two weeks ago -- a 17" frame. I'm 5' 9" with a 32" inseam. I was just seeing if that size fit me (it did), because I was ordering a Monocog Flight and the current models share very similar geometries.

There is one on ebay from a local bike shop here in MI. I called the guy two days ago and he weighed the 19" frame for me and it weighed 3.5 lbs. Not sure about the stand over but it is pretty light weight.

Do you think you would fit on a 19 with a 90mm stem? I'm looking at a 19" and I am 5'11 with a 32 inseam...

The standover will be minimal (it's listed at 31.75"), but the top tube isn't especially long, at 23.7".

As a 32" inseamer, I went with the 17", but lengthened the stock 100 mm stem to 110. Your torso is longer than mine, so the 19" will probably feel good in terms of lenth, if you can deal with the lack of standover clearance. Got a dealer near you where you could score a test ride? Redline is dirtributed by SBS, so lots of shops stock them

What about the Access XCL 29er frame from performance bike? $99 and it is almost exactly the same weight. Probably the best deal out there on a lightweight 29er frame.

D660

21" 2010 Redline D660
I believe the 2009 setup is identical.

My inseam is 34.5", floor to crotch w/cycling shoes.
Standover is 33.25" measured(where I actually stand), spec is 32.99" spec.

I've saw a new 2010 go recently for $800, but $1000-$1100 would be more typical (again new).
