    Fit help Salsa Horsethief vs Ibis Ripley

    Hello All,

    I currently ride a large Salsa Ht and I am looking to buy an Ibis Ripley and I'm thinking I need to move up to a XL..

    I am 6'2"ish 34 inseam and relatively short arms, local trails and my riding tend to be 60-70% trail and XC as much as I have to to get to the trails, heh.

    Current setup looks like:

    I'm thinking I need he XL because I don't want to be the bars any further below the normal pedaling seat height and the reach and wheelbase on the XL Ripley vs my current bike are pretty similar. Is the Ripley normally run a little short/small?

    Go XL. Yes Ripley's tend to run smaller than other brands.
