    Fair Trade?

    Hey, sorry to post two new topics in the same day but I wanted advice from those in the know before I make a possible trade tomorrow. I have a Fully Rigid Aluminum 22' Diamondback Response with Shimano Acera components. I found a fully rigid 20' Giant Boulder 520, which would be just the right fit I think. In your opinions, do you think this would be a fair trade? Or should I ask for a little more on top of the trade? Thank you in advance.

    I'm between 5'10 and 5'11 and I was told that I have long legs and arms and I have kind of a bulky upper body with broad shoulders if all of that matters.

    Not sure, I haven't been able to find a tape measurer. I know it's frustrating giving advice to a novice. I have the same problem when giving advice about weight lifting and photography so I apologize if I'm making this difficult lol. I just went into my LBS and they said that I should be riding a 19.5 but could ride a 19 or 20 if I'm buying used.
