    Sizing advice needed for Trek Stache 8

    Looking for advice on frame size. Have decided to upgrade from my current 14 year Trek6000 to a 29er. I really like the look and setup on the Trek Stache 8 but am unsure as to getting a 19in or 21in. My Trek6000 is a 21in and I am 6ft 2in, trouser length 32in and around the 180lbs mark. The bike has to be ordered in so looking for some sound advice on sizing as I am borderline between the 2.

    For mountain bikes, it is better to buy the one that is slightly smaller, as it will be easier for you to move around while riding on a mountain trail.

    At 6'2", you need the 21" frame.
    Just for reference, I'm 5'9" and ride the 17", but I could easily also ride the 19". A friend of mine is 6'1" and has been professionally fitted to a 21".
