First off, I am about as green to mountain bikes as you can get and I am picking up the sport to drop some weight. after visiting several lbs's and hangin around here on the forums for a while, I decided on a seeker..... LOVE it by the way!!..... Being 6'5" and a little over 300 lbs, the lbs's I visited never had any big framed bikes but they all agreed that I need the biggest one I can get so I went with a 22" frame...... This is really the first bike I have ever had that doesn't feel like a kids toy under me.
........the reason For this post is what I didn't figure for..... The stand-over height is advertised as 32.5" if I remember correctly and I have a 35" inseam, so, no worries...... Right? Well, I didn't realize that the stand-over height is measured right by the seat post...... The stand-over height at the point where the front of my body while I stand in front of the seat is 35"......... Kinda scary! But I don't think I would want to give up the cockpit room though because when I'm on the bike it is perfect! Feels like I'm part of the bike instead of balancing on top like a circus bear.
I don't really have a question, just wanted to put that out there and see any thoughts.
