    Mountain Bike Sizing

    Hello! I am new to Mountain Biking and I just bought myself a Trek 3700 22.5" bike. I am looking for another used mountain bike to buy for my boyfriend so I have someone to ride with on a regular basis. I am 6'3" and the 22.5" feels really comfortable for me. My boyfriend is 6'7" and therefore needs the same size or larger.

    I have been searching Craigslist for a used bike for him to get for his birthday with no luck. Does anyone have any suggestions for models of bikes that come in size 22.5" or larger?

    I am looking for a relatively cheap bike since I am short on cash but I also do not want it to break right away. So far all I have done are intermediate trails and I do not forsee us getting too extreme in the near future since we are both new to the sport. Keep in mind though he is a boy and will probably be riding harder than I am because he has no fear.

    Thanks for the help guys!

    Look for 29ers, 26ers that big are hard to come by.

    I think I saw something like what you need on eBay a few days ago. Take a look there...
