    New question here. Nashbar 27.5 Sizing Help??

    I am looking at picking up a Nashbar 27.5 from Amazon. They have it in 19" and 21". I am not sure what size to order. My current bike is an old 2003 Specialized Rockhopper 19" that is now my 14 year old son's bike. I am not sure what size to get in the Nashbar. I am 6', but have a longer torso with a about a 30" inseam and wear a 32" inseam pant. This would be my first 27.5 bike. Thanks.

    Hard to say man. I'm 5'7 and I ride a Medium sized Specialized Pitch in 27.5 I would think you could go with a large but its going to depend on reach as well. Someone who has experience with the nashbar will probably chime in. Have you tried to call them directly to see what they may suggest?

    I did chat with them online. They suggested the 19" which was the size of my old Rockhopper.

    you could look at the specs and measurements of the bike and compare it the specs of the rockhopper. I would say the 19" but I am newer here as well but your height at 6'0 is the same as some of my other friends who ride large frames at 19"
