    EVO sizing

    Getting ready to buy the EVO and need help sizing, sent an email to airborne but they are off during the weekend so hopefully someone here can help

    5'11"
    32" inseam
    Arm Length 2'1"

    dont want to feel jammed on the bike so I don't mind a lager bike but I would like to know the best fit, 18" or 20" frame?

    thanks

    I'm maybe a little bigger than you and I got the 18". I don't feel cramped on it at all, and I think I might feel too stretched on a 20".

    Thanks fattty, that's what I'm thinking. I think the 18" is the way to go, just want everyone's opinions/experiences!

    6' and 35.5" inseam -- I went with the 20 and love it. Though I'm in the camp that says slightly larger frame (when on the fence), wide bars, and shorten the stem.

    I'm not sure what methods you used to measure yourself, but FWIW, I'm about 71.5 inches tall with a 32.5 inseam. I have no idea how to measure my arms properly.

    When did you order it? I ordered mine last Tuesday the 17th and it doesn't look like they've shipped it yet

    I emailed them. They shipped it 2 days after I ordered it (as advertised!) I just didn't get any shipping confirmation or tracking number. Now apparently they tried to deliver it on Saturday but I wasn't home, so they said they'd try again the next business day (which was today). I stayed home all day but no fedex truck came Hopefully tomorrow!

    I've always had issues w/ FedEx. When I ordered my Seeker, it only took 4-5 days to get to me, but I never let FedEx deliver expensive items. I'll always schedule a personal pick up so they don't dump my big ticket items at some random person's house or worse, completely jack it up.

    The Fedex guy who delivered the bike today said that they do residential deliveries Tue-Sat which is why they didn't come out yesterday. Box and bike inside was in good shape, no complaints; I wasn't home when they tried to deliver on Saturday.
