    Anybody in the 5'6" range riding a Cdale 29er?

    Looks to me like they are missing the smaller size; I see in some posts here that they will offer a smaller geo bike this spring? Just curious if any shorter guys are riding a medium.

    Thanks,

    I'm exactly 5' 7" riding a Medium trailSL2 29 with the stock stem (9cm 5deg) inverted. Fits like a glove, not having any kind of disconfort on 4hs non stop rides. IMO a S frame woud be too small for a 5'6" rider.

    Coming from a 26er to a Cannondale 29er; one thing i have noticed and have heard been mentioned is that cannondale 29er in general are designed around people with long legs and short torso. This is noticeable when comparing the seat tube angle and the Top tube length with other bikes out there. i.e. it is a little more aggressive then Specialized 29er geo.

    So to sum it up, if you got longer leg length then reach, the Med 29er should fit you well. I am 5'7" and i find the cockpit a little tight for me (had to slight the saddle all the way to the back). It is best to try riding one in the shop if you can, that will answer all your problems on the bike fitment.
