    Enduro 29 xl versus xxl tallboy - advice needed

    Hi there,

    I need some advice regarding bike size, I ride a carbon Santa Cruz tallboy xxl - it has a long 26" tt and a reach of 458mm.

    I've recently had my eye on a spesh enduro 29. It has a shorter tt but a longer reach than my xxl tallboy - 465mm

    I did a test ride and expected the longer reach of the enduro 29 xl, however it felt really small - if it has a longer reach than my current bike why does it feel too small - I test rode it with same stem and bar that I use on my tallboy.

    Well, the tallboy is an XC bike, the enduro has an emphasis on downhill, so no big surprise there, it's going to feel a bit more cramped climbing even if it is the same equivalent size. How tall are you?
