    Gen 2 Kona process 153 sizing

    So, Iím about to pull the trigger on the new process 153 27.5 al, but hoping to get some input on frame sizing.

    Iím between 6í1 and 6í2 (closer to 6í2) with 34Ē inseam without shoes. My local shop only has large, and it seems to fit just fine on my parking lot test. The reach seems a bit short when Iím standing but not sure if thatís because Iím not used to the bike or large is too small for me.

    I realize this is a new bike, so probably not many people have this yet. However, last years process has similar reach.

    So, Iím hoping for those who has last years process (or new one), and have similar build as me, if you could shed some light on whether I should go large or xl. The reach between the two seems to be around 1.5Ē, which doesnít seem much.

    Thanks in advance for any insight.

    Well, just re-measured myself - i'm actually just a little shy of 6'2, with inseam closer to 35" without shoes (although i sometimes do wear 34" pants measurement).

    Still, any input is welcome

    Go with the XL. I'm a little taller than you (6'3") but with shorter legs. My last bike was a 2015 process 153, and it fit perfectly. I recently got to ride the 2018 and the fit was overall similar with a shorter stem.

    Great, Thanks.

    Just pulled the trigger on XL. Now waiting to hear back from Kona to see how long it'll take for me to get my bike
