I have a sz small Superlight. My jeans are a 30" inseam. I'm 5' 3" tall, 145 lbs. I think a med SL would be too big for me. I also have a sz small Blur XC. If it was any bigger it would be too big for me.
I'm 5'6 with ~ 29.75 inseam and weigh ~175. Im also coming from mostly road background, fit, feel.JTPATE78 said:Newbie here coming over from the road.
Looking to buy the Santa Cruz Superlight and have q's on the geometry. This time of year all the local dealer for Santa Cruz in Atlanta don't have any stock. I'm looking to buy used (preferably) or online.
I'm 5'6 with a 28.5" inseam and weigh around 145-150. Some say a small and others say a medium. I can't find a local dealer that has any to get on. What size frame would you recommend?
I'm coming over from the Ironman/TT world looking to do some XC racing and possibly getting into Xterra Tri's. Haven't been in the pool in awhile now, so I may stick to the bike or duathlons.
Anyone have any opinions on this bike and have an sizing opinions?
I've got a thread running in XC Training Forum and it seems this is the best bike for $$$$ and what I'm looking to do.
Thanks in advance!!
It was a new RX build with the Raceface post - perhaps a 350mm? Pretty sure the post was near the max line and Im still 5'6" - if anything, Im shrinking in my older age25lbs&counting said:enr1co, you sure they didn't cut that seat tube on the small? I'm using a thompson seatpost, and if I extend it all the way, my feet wouldn't reach the pedals. Your pick is right coming from the road side. I came from a BMX side, so JT there you go, different strokes for different folks.
Coloradocyclist has still lists some Small SL's and Juliana's with DX packages on sale for $1499. (Juliana frame specs are same as SL and no shame w/ having the name of one of the best mt bike racers from a few years back in small type on the top tube. You can also pull off the name sticker if it happens to be on a non clear coated batch of frames )JTPATE78 said:Coming from the triathlon side. Rode on top of the stem. Thinking small might be way go go.
Would you guys buy a dxc? Trying to stay under or around $1,700. Buy used? Or buy new?
Looking to get legs underneath me, but have a bike I can race without upgrading.
Is the Titus Racer X pretty comp?
