    right size for handjob...

    I have the same problem: I'm intersted to Cove Handjob, I'm about 5,11 tall (180cm) with a 32 inch inside leg (82cm) and I don't know if the right size for me is the 17,5 or 19,5...
    Now I have a Specialized Stumpjumper 18 size and I feel good with it
    Some one can suggest the right size for the Handjob?
    thanks

    New question here. Handjob XC - what year?

    New Cove owner here - just bought a 2nd hand, but never built up Handjob. After a spin on a friends realised I had to own one!
    Can anyone tell me what year the frame is? I can't find reference to the deep blue colour anywhere for 2007/08 models. Can do better photos if necessary.
    thanks.

    05? Thanks for that. About time the thing was built up and abused then!

    Did Cove go out of business? Their website says 2006...

    [SIZE=2]No, like some other manufacturers they are lazy about making new websites every year. They have a new Hustler and G-Spot coming out later in 08.

    Another size question.

    I have picked up a new Hustler at an incredible price. However, it's a 21" and I'm 6 feet with a 33" inseam. Too big?

    [SIZE=2]Nirvana nr Dorking in the UK does great deals on build ups and has a £1 off next time for every £10 you spend this time or if you spend 1000 they will give you 100 off free stuff, they are also nice people which counts towards them but most of you guys are in the US.

    @ilostmypassword - nice Handjob
    Is that a 15.5" or 17.5" frame? I've got a black 17.5" myself. What's the full spec?

    @jimsterchua - I'm 5'8" with 32" inseam and I went with the 17.5" and it's sweet. Keep in mind that the top tube is quite long on them.
