    Cotic BFe sizing

    Anybody out there ride a cotic BFe? There is one several hours away for sale but it is a small. Usually mediums in any bike fit me reasonably well. My back cant handle being stretched out. I am ~5ft 9in.

    Unfortunately its not a bike you can go demo here in the US. If I get it I will build it up with a 150mm Fox Talas from a broken Knolly. Shortish stem (~45mm) and wide bars.

    Anybody with experience on BFe sizing?

    I've got a Soul, but I'm 5'6"... and yes it's a small. If I can suggest, go to the singletrackworld forum. It's mostly UK riders on there and they could have input for you.

    Cheers

    I'm 5"8 with 30" inseam and ride a small Bfe with a 70mm stem and 760mm bars. The bike fits me great I will say on longer rides I'm usually scooting my butt back on the saddle though. I'm probably going to try out a 50mm stem eventually.

    Thanks for the advice guys. I decided to go with the small based on the top tube length. I am looking for a playful bike so smaller is better. This will be the first bike I have built from the frame up so it should be a fun project.
