    Need help deciding frame size

    Recently I broke my Mongoose Teocali frame so I'm in a search of new bike.
    I came across a pretty good deal on a Yeti ASR 7 26'...the frame is s/m and I am 5'9 more or less, anyone got experience with these bikes and can suggest about it?
    thanks a lot!

    It's like a 16 or so, Yeti's tend to be a bit longer in reach... but there is a whole Yeti forum on here (way down the bottom of the site, alphabetically) where guys are pretty knowledgable and helpful, so try there)
    All the gear and no idea.

    There is a lot of variation in frame sizing but at your height most medium bikes are going to fit you. A small would definitely be too small. A large may be ok but it would depend on the bike in question.

    You are average height so most of the bikes out there are perfect!

    I'm 5'9 and I'm riding small 2006 Yeti 575. Ever since '98 I've been riding bikes with 22.5" (or close to it) effective top tube, and the bikes feel like an extension of me. I've tried bikes in Medium size and they never felt right for me. So I do think that there is a bit of a personal preference when it comes to sizing. I'd also say that from my perspective a smaller frame feels more comfortable on technical trails, with a larger frame being potentially better on less technical trails.
