    Question about sizing

    Do the frames run large, small, or true to size? I'm thinking about ordering a Goblin X0 and I'm not sure what size to buy. I currently ride a Jamis 19" frame, and I love the way it fits. It's 12 years old, and just time to retire it. I'm between 5'11.5 and 6' depending on the day of the week, the winds, and the relative humidity. I did a bike size calculator on Competitive Cyclist, and it said I could fit an 18"-20" frame. I'm inclined to go with the 20" because I have a fairly long reach, but if they run bigger that might be too big. Thanks for your help.

    I went from a 19.5" 12 year old Schwinn Moab (still a very nice bike really) to a 20" Goblin and the size feels right. A little background: I am 6'2" with short legs (32" inseam) and long arms. My wife is 5'10" and riding an 18" Guardian which fits her very well. To be sure, I would send your measurements to Jeremy and double check the stand over height, but I'm thinking you need to be on a 20", not an 18".

    For sure check with Jeremy or Eric. I am 5 11.5 with a 31 inseam and the Goblin XO in 18 in fits like a glove.

    Give Eric a call when you get a moment at 800-888-BIKE.

    We'd need a little more info like actual inseam and arm-length to dial in the fit. At your height you could go either way depending on those factors, riding style, preferences, etc.

    Our frames run true to size, and the numbers we post on the website in regards to ETT and Standover are pretty spot-on.

    Thanks!
