I'm 6'1" 33" inseam. I've had a large Uzzi VP, a large Uzzi VPP, a large 6.6 and a large Tracer -- get a large.

You could ride a Med but would always wonder "should I have gotten a large?"

Depends how / what you ride. I'm 5'10 and own a medium but am also quite comfortable on a small Uzzi VP. If you want more of a play bike you might think about going smaller. But if you pedal lots or want a more versatile bike you might go bigger.

I'm 6' with a 32" inseam and I just ordered a large. I test rode a medium earlier last summer and I could have pulled it off but it was cramped. I would also recommend a large but it depends on arm, torso, leg, and preference.

I'm 5'10.5" with an insteam of 34" and ride a large with 45mm stem. It feels just as good pedalling long routes as it does doing downhill on it.

Get the medium. It is way more maneuverable than a large. Trust me, I've experienced larges and you can feel how big the bike is in many situations, I've tried loads of bikes and ridden a large bike for over 4 years. Medium is the way to go. I'm 6 ft tall and LOVE my medium Uzzi. Especially if you ride lots of tight switchbacks, a large would be too big for you. I had to deal with that for over 4 years before I got my Uzzi.

Even though I recommend the medium, the best thing to do would be to see if you could ride both sizes on a trail, (not just the road) and see how you like it. I'm betting you'll like the medium, though.

At 6' you need a large. I am dead on 6 foot and rode the medium with a 50mm stem and kept hitting my knees on the stem. Unless you like your bikes particularly short of course.

Go with a large unless you have some freakishly short torso and arms. I'm 6'4" tall and the large is too small for me. A longer top tube and shorter stem is the right ticket.

Anyone knows, how long the seattube on a small Uzzi VP frame is? Intense page says it's 16", Competitive Cyclist page says it's 15.5" (which would be shorter than the seattube of my small Slopestyle frame). Thank you in advance :thumbsup:

Hi all.

unfortunately I can't ride uzzi before I buy it :-( so I don't know what Size it will be good for me ?

My height is 175cm (5'9") and I don't know what size uzzi will be good for me ?

My type of riding is very aggressive all mountain. I love get on the top of mountain by myself and descend like DH/FR.

Gravitty Dropper use on uzzi is mandatory !!

PS.
Currently I have Yeti 575 (2007) with S size, bur when I try compare this geo ... I think I should take uzzi M ... but I still have problem - Please help ME :D

My Yeti - S size with 160 fork (Fox 36 Talas):
Bicycle tire Bicycle frame Bicycle wheel rim Bicycle wheel Bicycle fork

Dude you definitely need a medium, if you are 5"9' there is no way you could pedal a small uphill. Go for the medium with a 50 mm stem.
